I grew up in DeKalb, Illinois and admit to being a proud (and eternally grateful) Cubs fan! In my free time I'm an avid photographer and traveler. My husband and I have one grown daughter whom we are very proud of and one rescue dog that we adore. I enjoy caring for children in need and also counseling about healthy habits that promote well-being.
