Who I am

I'm a mom of two fantastic teenagers. Not an oxymoron! They teach me new things every day. Like ... if you take away the Xbox controllers for just ONE HOUR, homework gets done!

For the ten years I've had this framed in my kitchen it has become more and more and more true.

I live in Oak Park, IL, which is a beautiful (if eccentric) place full of buildings Frank Lloyd Wright designed, where Ray Kroc and Ernest Hemingway grew up, and the high school has upwards of 4,000 kids going to school there each year.

I am on a competitive BBQ team, so one of the highlights of working with me is that you might get to have some of what we make. 

I'm in a local comedy troupe (who in Chicago isn't?) with my friends, too. 

And I have an amazing group of friends I love very, very much.
