Originally from Macomb, she lived in Springfield for nearly 20 years during which time she worked for a couple area non-profit organizations before persuing her real estate license. She received her B.S. in Recreation, Park and Tourism Administration from Western Illinois University and a M.S. in Communication from the University of Illinois at Springfield. Her husband Chris and she has three young sons and are enjoying all the joys (and challenges) of parenthood as well as their old hobbies of cooking, spending time with friends , enjoying the outdoors, and traveling, though much less and closer to home now. 

The NPR Illinois Community Advisory Board (CAB) met in Chicago and connected by videoconference to Springfield. The primary purposes of the meeting were to welcome new advisory board members who begin their new terms on July 1, 2018 and to provide input about whether NPR Illinois’ programming and policies meet the specialized educational and cultural needs of the community it serves.
