I am a 30 year resident of Palatine Township where I live with my husband and our two college-age sons. I have been active in many of the same local organizations that have touched the lives of so many in the Township. My family and I have been involved with local organized sports via Inverness Soccer Club, Celtic Soccer, the Northwest Chargers, and D211 Hockey Club. We are also parishioners of the Holy Family Catholic Church. Professionally, my husband and I own a locally domiciled company, Wealth Management Group, LLC., where I serve as the company’s Chief Operating Officer.

I hope that my time served as a Trustee will leave a positive mark on all my fellow neighbors inside our wonderful community. Specifically, I intend to utilize my professional skills to drive defined outcomes that maintain and enhance the core programs of the township. In particular, I hope to develop outreach programs that focus on the topics of financial education and resource utilization, to empower residents to improve the lives of themselves and their loved ones financially. In addition to outreach, it is pivotal that elected officials act as excellent stewards of the financial resources that we have been entrusted with. Fiscal responsibility is core to my professional DNA and I intend to extend those capabilities to my time as a Trustee.

Thank you to all that blessed me with this opportunity to be of service and I look forward to seeing you, my fellow neighbor, at community events.
