Season Winesburg

Executive Director

After graduating Summa Cum Lauda from Columbia in 2011, Season’s love for working in the operating room continued as she worked with Smile Train and Surgical volunteers International, an organization that traveled to impoverished third world countries performing free cleft lip and palate and burn reconstruction surgeries on children around the world. Stepping into the role of Marketing Director for the surgery center led her down a new path of business development. While she continues a career as a business development director within the medical industry, she continues to serve. As an international ambassador for the ALS Associations Greater Chicago Chapter, she is able to raise much needed funds and spread awareness and education on a cause extremely close to her heart. Season and the ALSA family will not stop until a cure is found! As a former Miss Illinois International (2013), she is thrilled to return as Executive Director to continue to empower the girls and women of Illinois to enhance their purpose and passion through Pageantry.
