She then joined Neighborhood  House in January 2019. The nonprofits she has served cover a wide range services that help children, young families, college students and older adults.

Ms. Liccione was named one of the “Top 100 Women Making a Difference” by Today’s Chicago Woman magazine when she served Meals on Wheels in Chicago.

Widge completed her coursework at UW-Milwaukee’s Cultural Foundation of Education Masters’ program and earned a B.A. (Psychology) from John Carroll University near Cleveland, Ohio.
