Tish Rudnicki, Executive Director
All the activities at the North Shore Senior Center

For nearly 30 years, Tish Rudnicki has dedicated her professional life to helping seniors throughout Chicagoland and Illinois live healthy and fulfilling lives.


Tish joined North Shore Senior Center as Executive Director in mid-January of this year. In her two short months as Executive Director, Tish has been busy getting to know the ins and outs of North Shore Senior Center’s vast scope of programs and services—from its classes and clubs, to the work its social workers do with struggling seniors and people living with memory loss.


Prior to joining North Shore Senior Center, Tish worked for 29 years at the Kenneth Young Center, a provider of comprehensive behavioral health services to individuals of all ages and community-based social services to older adults throughout the northwest suburbs of Chicago. She completed her tenure there as the Chief Program Officer overseeing all of the behavioral health, medical and older adult programming.


Tish has a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Miami University and a master’s in social work from the University of Illinois at Chicago. She has served on Illinois’ Coordinated Care Alliance since 2013, for two years as its board president. In her free time, Tish cherishes being with family and friends, hiking, biking, playing golf and gardening.
