Northwest Community Hospital’s Foundation has added three successful individuals to its Board of Trustees, which is comprised of civic and business leaders from throughout the area. Megan Bueschel, Janet Boyle and Richard R. Mottweiler have each been elected to three-year terms.
As the fundraising arm of the Hospital, the NCH Foundation inspires charitable donations to help Northwest Community Hospital to invest in state-of-the-art facilities, advanced technologies, additional community outreach programs, and more in-depth research.
Megan C. Bueschel
Megan Bueschel of Inverness is senior vice president and chief marketing officer for Mario Tricoci Hair Salons and Day Spas in Palatine. She grew up in Mount Prospect, and has lived in the northwest suburbs most of her life.
Megan’s charity work has taken place mostly in the workplace. She directed two “Mario Cuts for a Cause” fundraising campaigns – one on behalf of hurricane Katrina victims, and the other for those made homeless by the devastating earthquake in Haiti. The Haiti project raised enough money to build six homes.
A member of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority, Bueschel has participated in the Chicago Northwest Suburban Panhellenic organization’s college scholarship program by assisting with fundraising events and the selection of scholarship winners. As a past president of the Chicago chapter of American Women in Radio and Television, now Women in Media, she supported fundraising for college scholarships.
Bueschel holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of South Florida in Tampa, where she included advertising in her double major. Her lifelong career in marketing communications includes experience in print, television and radio. She has executed a range of successful marketing strategies, and hopes to use this expertise in her new role as an NCH Foundation trustee.
Janet E. Boyle
Janet Boyle of Arlington Heights is the principal attorney at Janet E. Boyle & Associates. She formed her practice in 1989 and today operates offices in Arlington Heights and Chicago, specializing in family law.
Janet was a breast cancer patient at NCH in 2009, and ever since has been a strong advocate and spokesperson in the community for NCH. She’s become a member of the Foundation’s President’s Circle and its Council, and participates in the Hospital’s Breast Program Community Advisory Council.
She and her husband, Chuck Adler, have also been active in a number of other area organizations, including the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce, the Rotary Club of Arlington Heights, and the Derby Gala Committee benefitting Special Olympics.
Janet received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago and her Doctorate of Jurisprudence from the Illinois Institute of Technology Chicago-Kent College of Law. She is an active member of the Illinois State Bar Association and the Chicago Bar Association, having served on numerous committees over the years, and has spoken publicly on a range of legal topics.
Richard R. Mottweiler
Rick Mottweiler of Palatine is an attorney who established a private law practice in 1986 and today manages offices in Inverness and Addison. His practice specializes in criminal defense and civil rights litigation.
Growing up in Mount Prospect, Rick has deep affiliations with Northwest Community Hospital. Both his grandmother, Dorothy Balch, and mother, Pat Mottweiler, served NCH as volunteers. Once president of the Women’s Auxiliary, Pat represented the group on the NCH corporate board during her tenure. More personally, Rick has been an outspoken fan of NCH especially since 2007 when he underwent quadruple bypass heart surgery.
As president of the William Fremd High School Booster Club, Rick spearheaded an initiative to tackle adolescent obesity and foster better health for students. The group raised funds to equip a “health club for everyone” that offered all kids – not just the athletes – a place to exercise on campus.
Rick studied political science and received his undergraduate degree at the University of Illinois. After graduating from the Illinois Institute of Technology Chicago-Kent College of Law, Rick worked for the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office before going into private practice.
