• I am an Illinois native and have grown up in the south suburbs of Chicago.  I attended Saint Xavier University for both Undergraduate and Graduate degrees in Speech-Language Pathology.  I spent the first three years of my career working for Chicago Public Schools. This is my third year at East Maine School District #63 and at Washington School. 

    In my spare time, I enjoy being active, exploring neighborhood gardens, listening to audiobooks, watching shows and movies, visiting new & favorite restaurants with my husband, and coming up with cute nicknames for our little white scruffy dog, Misiu :-D.
