LPCS Welcomes Bobbie Lang and Erica Betts!

Bobbie Lang, Business Manager

Bobbie joined us in April of 2013.  Bobbie graduated from Northern Illinois University with a Bachelor of Science; she worked for 10 years in Store Planning and Capital Project Management for Target, TruServ, and The Home Depot.  Bobbie left the corporate world in 2006 to get her Masters of Education from Roosevelt University and along the way she got married and started a family.  In 2012, she found herself working at a non-profit overseeing the finances and operations.  Her desire to work with a community based program led her to LPCS.  She is very excited to be part of such a dynamic, engaged, and dedicated organization.

In her spare time, she likes hanging out with her husband and two children, reading, hiking, and has just recently found a new appreciation for running.

“Life is not about how fast you run or how high you climb, but how well you bounce.”

Erica Betts, Supportive Services Supervisor

I am “All but Dissertation” in the Doctorate of Education program at Argosy University. I hold a Master’s degree in Social Work and Bachelor’s degree in Sociology, both from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

My previous experience includes management at a homeless shelter for at-risk teen moms and their children, social worker for the cardiac and orthopedic unit within a health care facility, and an acute psychosis therapist for severely mentally ill clients.

My hobbies are jumping head first into any adventure my eight year daughter can come up with; she is the life of the party!  I also enjoy learning new dance moves from various cultures.
