I've been living in Chicago since 1996. I'm married to William and together we have an 8 year old son, 18 year old Maine Coon feline friend, and 25 year son (my stepson). We enjoy rehabbing our vintage building from 1908 with the goal for it to be authentically restored. Practically everything in our home is an antique. We enjoy renting 5 of the units to our wonderful tenants, most of whom have been with us for over a decade. William is a producer/editor of mostly documentaries and I work in health policy, holding a degree in social service administration, a certificate in health administration and policy and several certificates in various alternative healing modalities. I enjoy biking on the lakefront, writing, drawing, water color painting, cooking and baking allergen free organic food, gardening, crocheting, reading, learning the guitar, advocating for educational issues, public safety, and access to health care. My greatest joy is spending time with our children and sharing the world with them.
