Arlene has worked as an Accounting and Income Tax professional for the past 22 years and is also an avid motorcycle enthusiast in her spare time. In 2006, Arlene along with her husband David, joined the Wild Fire H.O.G. Chapter (Harley Owners Group), a local Harley-Davidson chapter in Villa Park, IL. Soon after, Arlene and David went on their first ride with their new riding friends which happened to be the Inaugural Ride Janie Ride in support of the foundation's namesake, Janie Bawel.
That day forever changed their lives and they both have since participated in every Ride Janie Ride event in different capacities. Arlene, through her passion for the Ride Janie Ride Foundation and the members of the Board, has since become a Board Member for Ride Janie Ride as the Foundation's Secretary and is also involved in RJR's merchandising.
Arlene has lent her professional skills in the capacity of Treasurer for 5 years, serving as a Primary Officer for the Wild Fire Chapter, and for 2 years at the state level for the Illinois State H.O.G. Rallies.
Giving back through charity is Arlene's passion, and she looks forward to continuing her service to the Ride Janie Ride Foundation.
Arlene, along with her husband, relocated to Houston, TX in May 2016 and enjoys warm weather nearly 365 days a year and a much longer motorcycle riding season, as well as earning many travel miles back and forth to Chicago for every Ride Janie Ride event, her family and her job located in Schaumburg, IL.
