I’m a Wisconsin native who moved to Chicago as a teenager to attend the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. During my college years and after graduation I lived in different neighborhoods around the city like a lot of recent transplants do. Eventually I settled in the north shore suburb Glenview. I loved how it revitalized the land of the old naval air base known as The Glen and the friendliness of the locals. Once I got a little more free time I began volunteering for a local nonprofit organization known as The Glenview Women’s Club. The Glenview Women’s Club has been active more than 30 years and it does multiple fundraising events throughout the year and then does one annual disbursement to multiple Chicagoland charities such as the Heartland Animal Shelter, WINGs and annual scholarships to the Glenbrook South Evening High School program – just to name a few. Thankfully my hard work got noticed by the leaders and I was quickly elevated to a Board position and then last year elected President. It’s a really rewarding endeavor and I’ve made a lot of new friends from my involvement. I recommend everyone set aside time to do volunteer work.
When I’m not doing Board duties I work in the corporate world specializing in Marketing Project Management and Senior Executive Assistant work. And like most creative types I *do* have a side hustle (insert smiling emoji with jazz hands). I started pursuing my childhood passion of acting again last year and worked background on Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, Empire and Shameless. Later this year on episodes of The Chi and the Netflix show Easy. My favorite memory so far was showing up to work and Courteney Cox was there (as a Shameless guest star). I was a Friends fan so that made my day to be on set with her. And yes I do have a headshot.
