The Board of Directors for The Sharing Center has announced Lynn Biese, of Kenosha, has accepted its invitation to serve as the interim director of the  agency.

Biese, a chiropractor, has been a familiar face in Kenosha County business and non-profit circles for the past 20 years, a press release from the agency said.

Biese will replace The Sharing Center Board member Kim Mackay, who stepped in to temporarily assist with the day-to-day operations of the Sharing Center after the last director, Liz Peyton, and three other staff members resigned without advanced notice two weeks ago.

“I knew coming on board that I would be a temporary fill in as executive director until we could find the right person for the transition,” Mackay said in a email message to “I have some new job assignments starting March 15, so this works out perfectly for me to phase out and Lynn to phase in.”

Biese was instrumental in helping the center meet two crucial grant deadlines this week, after she heard about the vacancy and volunteered to help, Mackay said.

The agency will continue to seek permanent replacements for its staff.

The Sharing Center is Western Kenosha County’s most prominent relief agency. It focuses on helping individuals it serves to return to self-sufficiency, according to its website. It is headquartered at 7001 236th Ave., Paddock Lake.
