Biographical Information
I live with my husband, Rich, in our little house in Elmhurst.  We will celebrate our 14th anniversary this September!  I am a wife, a sister, an aunt, and a daughter.  I have two special children in my life: my nephew, Noah and my niece, Rose.  Rose is starting Kindergarten this year!  Noah will be in 4th grade.  I love to read stories of all kinds, to swim and hike, and to paint.  I am an avid movie watcher, and I enjoy cooking and eating organic and healthy foods.
