Community Involvement:

I am the president of the Lake County Bar Association the purpose of which is to promote the rule of law and the legal profession. I am also a member of the Community Outreach committee of the Lake County Bar Association, and I am a volunteer lawyer with the Volunteer Lawyer Network of Lake County.

Hobbies and Interests:

I am love watching my two girls play sports (basketball, skiing, gymnastics), but especially soccer! You can find me on a court or field all over Lake Bluff throughout the year. I love to walk around the village with my dog and girlfriends to refresh and focus. Politics is my other hobby, so I am always involved in supporting qualified candidates throughout Lake County because I firmly believe that all politics are local.

Village Issues Most Concerned With (not listed in any particular order):

Most concerned with the safety of the village, primarily ensuring the safety of our children. Stormwater is a big issue that we must tackle. Fiscal health of the village. Environment.
