She is also an active member of the Women’s Auxiliary with the VFW Post 9545 in New Lenox. She enjoys giving back and investing whatever she can into our amazing community.

This serves as a sound support to her clients when making the decision on the perfect home. Adding to her work experience, she also worked as a loan officer providing her with valuable insight to her clients as they are maneuvering through the due process of the home buying experience.
In her personal life, she is engaged to my best friend John. They share a blended family of six children, and a beautiful granddaughter too! In their family time, they enjoy getting involved with charitable events and giving back to their community!
