Before founding Prose Pros, Inc. in 2000, Gail amassed extensive experience in internal, advancement and marketing communications. As director of member and employee communications for the American Dietetic Association (now the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics), she oversaw communications for the organization’s 70,000+ members and 100-person staff. Directing internal communications for Loyola University Chicago, she edited the university’s print and electronic staff communications and created the School of Business Administration’s first alumni magazine.
Gail also has served as associate editor of the Gazette, one of Chicago’s only remaining independent newspapers, for which she won several awards for her public-policy reporting and editorial writing. She is a regular volunteer with Little Brothers/Friends of the Elderly and the Lincoln Park Zoo, and devotes her downtime to travel, wildlife and conservation, hiking, music and reading.
