My husband Dan and I moved to Piedmont over 17 years ago for the quality education and beautiful community. Our three children, now ages 19, 17 and 14, attend(ed) Beach, PMS and PHS. I grew up in a big family and attended public school outside Chicago.

I have my MBA from the University of Chicago and my BS from the University of Illinois. My professional experience is as a business executive with Accenture (Andersen Consulting) and in brand management at The Clorox Company.

In this global health crisis it can be difficult to take a family photo. So, indeed the photo above is from 2016. Dan and I look exactly the same! All of my children, however, are now all taller than I am. You'll see them around town. Jackson just finished his Frosh year in college; you'll find him riding his bike to work down at the Grand Avenue ACE Hardware. Salem will be a senior at PHS and he's working at Tilden Golf Course mostly driving the ball-picker-upper machine. Entering her Sophomore year in HS, Shelby is doing some outdoor babysitting with Piedmont kids. Please say "Hi" if you see them (and let me know if anyone's not fully masked!)
