I grew up on the northwest side of Chicago. I came to ISU and earned a degree in Education with a focus on Middle School Education. I taught Social Studies and Language Arts for 8 years. Following that I transitioned to early childhood education for about two years. At that point I began working at Advocate Bromenn, working as an educator/trainer. I have been a Director of the Patient Access and Accounts department for the last eight years.
I have been married to my husband Dennis for 15 years and we have two kids, a 5 year old girl name Anastacia and a 9 year old boy named Joey.
