Family & Interests:

My Mom, Dad, three bothers and I grew up in a suburb just outside of Buffalo, NY. My husband James and I moved to Chicago in 2001 and love to experience the wonderful things this city has to offer. We currently reside in Park Ridge where we are working hard to raise three wonderful boys, Aidan, Gavin and Weston. I enjoy running, spending time together with family and friends, and watching our children grow.
