Ann Marchetti, M.S.

Consulting Director

As the Director of FORWARD, my job is to provide strategic business and coalition development, partnership and resource management; and ensure that the FORWARD’s work continues to be at the forefront of  national, regional and local conversations about chronic disease prevention and obesity.  Drawing from 18 years of progressive experience with smart non-profits in health care, human services and education, I provide leadership for our Program Coordinators and our partners at the DuPage County Health Department. I get motivated by the progress that FORWARD is making and the opportunity to change the life of every resident in DuPage with policy, systems, and environmental changes to make the healthy choice, the easy choice. I enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle that includes bicycling, running, walking, skiing, and a variety of daily exercise routines. I try to never go more than two days without exercising.
