About me
I was born and raised in the southwest suburbs and have lived within Chicago’s city limits since after I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Lawrence University. Throughout my career I have worked in start-ups and nonprofits occupying a mix of development, marketing and fundraising leadership roles. In my current position, I manage a member-based collaborative that brings leaders from across the healthcare ecosystem together to support Chicago’s most important health-related issues. Having studied music and theater, I continue to perform with local bands and work on various performing arts projects when opportunities arise. I am a self-proclaimed foodie with a weakness for donuts and tortilla chips. And, when I am not imbibing in Chicago’s greatest offerings, I am always seeking out unique cultural experiences and indulgences wherever I travel.

Why Chicago?
I grew up looking forward to visiting the city of Chicago from the suburbs any chance I could get. I have always appreciated the different cultural and life experiences you can have throughout the year. In the summer you can root for the White Sox or the Cubs while enjoying a Chicago-style hot dog. In the winter you can stay indoors and enjoy live performances in renowned theaters like the Goodman and Steppenwolf or step off the beaten path to see the future stars of SNL at Second City or iO Chicago.

What I enjoy the most are the people I meet living here. Chicago is the center of the United States and will always welcome those that pass through with a warm Midwestern welcome.
