Carole Koch, former chair of the Green Earth Institute Board of Directors, joined the Board of The Conservation Foundation when the two organizations merged in 2018. Carole, who lives in Naperville, began volunteering with Green Earth in 2003 and in addition to board duties, produced the weekly newsletter for the Community Supported Agriculture program for many years.

Carole was the Director of Human Resources at the University of Illinois Hospital & Clinics, and then Chief HR Officer/Associate Hospital Director at the U of I Medical Center in Chicago. After retirement, she volunteered as a docent at the Robert R. McCormick Museum, Cantigny Park, in Wheaton, and has served on the boards of directors for the Naperville Chorus, as well as the Chicago Chapter of the State Universities Annuitants Association.

Carole received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago and is a native Chicagoan. “Even though I grew up and spent my career in the city, I learned at a very young age to cherish and care for nature, having had an organic vegetable garden and a micro forest in our urban backyard, and regularly going on outings to explore the vast Cook County Forest Preserves.”
