A St. Charles woman is being appointed as a commissioner to the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission by Gov. Bruce Rauner.

Deborah Simpson currently serves as an arbitrator for the board, where she reviews, approves and sends corrections contracts between injured workers and employers, Rauner's office said in a news release. She also ensures parties understand what happens when entering into contracts. She previously served as Illinois' assistant attorney general for 11 years, representing state agencies in federal and state court.


Simpson graduated from DePaul University and received her law degree from The John Marshall Law School.
