Her computer screen saver scrolls with family pictures," begins a feature in today's Indianapolis Star.  Baker, director of the Women's Fund and 1989 graduate of DePauw University, is profiled in the newspaper's "My Office" column.

Jill Phillips writes, "The mother of two began volunteering for the Women's Fund prior to its official launch in 1996. When the need came for a director, she stepped up."

Baker, who previously served as director of development at St. Francis Healthcare Foundation, tells the Star, "I can only do this because of two things. One is that I know I'm doing something really important for the community, and I can explain that to my children. And two, I have an incredibly supportive husband."

She explains, "The Women's Fund of Central Indiana is an endowment that was created to provide options and opportunities to women and girls in Central Indiana. We do three things: We raise money, give it away and provide education for children and women."
