Monica Metzler JD (Illinois Science Council)
Founder & Executive Director
Monica’s formal education in science ended with high school chemistry. She went on to earn a B.S. in Public Policy from Northwestern University, and a J.D. along with an M.A. in Policy from Duke University. Her latent interest in science continued and in 2005 she realized Chicago had no coordinated effort promoting science as it did for arts & culture. She created ISC in 2006 to share the astounding amount of science happening in her hometown.
