As a career changer and single mother, I have a wealth of experience to share with you and your child. I have lived in Michigan as well as Illinois. I am a patron of the arts, enjoy reading, exercise, writing, baking and crossword puzzles.

I am an avid supporter of experiential learning. As trite as it may sound, life is the best teacher for the reflective practitioner. My lifelong learning includes sales, the hospitality industry, coaching, volunteering, hospice work, real estate, teaching and insurance.

I earned my undergrad degree from DePaul University’s School of New Learning and my master’s at the College of Education of DePaul.

As part of the Exclusive Agent Entrepreneurial Initiative at Allstate Insurance, I completed the Allstate Business Management and Sales Training Program which included underwriting, sales and business management.
