Naperville resident Laura Anderson is the newest member of the DuPage Children’s Museum board of directors.

Anderson serves as chief financial officer and treasurer for the Big Ten Conference. Before joining the Big Ten Conference, Anderson headed up operational activities of ESI Consultants in Naperville.
