Carolyn Zasada: Leadership & Service for Illinois

A combat-decorated veteran with 13 years leading Marines, I served as a Combat Engineer in Iraq and as a Cryptologic Linguist, founding a charity upon my return. As DeKalb’s 1st Ward Alderwoman and a member of the Lt. Governor’s Commission, I am dedicated to service, furthering my commitment by earning a B.S. in Economics and an M.A. in Public Policy.

Carolyn Zasada: Roots & Values

I cherish time with my family of five in DeKalb, Illinois. An avid volleyball player, swimmer, and a former Marine Combat Instructor of Water Survival, I value the lessons of life and the outdoors. Committed to leadership through humility, I believe in service that is truly accountable to its community.
