I have a bachelor's degree in journalism from St. Bonaventure University in Western New York. I have been an arts reporter for The Chautauquan Daily; a public relations writer for MicroAge Computer Stores International, and Briar Glen Elementary School; and more recently, a features writer for The Glen Ellyn News. I am a 19-year Jazzercise student and love traveling, reading, gardening and organic composting. I am empty-nesting in Glen Ellyn with my husband, Will. Our son Ian graduated from Lawrence University with music and art degrees and our daughter Cody is a film student at Columbia College of Chicago.
