I was born in Germany and grew up in Oak Lawn. I went to St. Xavier University and earned a degree in Business, with a concentration in Accounting, and graduated Magna cum Laude.
I was a Financial Analyst for the First National Bank of Chicago for 10 years, was a Vice President and Derivatives Operations Manager for Nationsbank for 4 years before opening an American Family Insurance Agency in Evergreen Park in 1998. I joined Insurance Pro Agencies in September of 2011.
I’m married and have 2 step-daughters, 3 crazy dogs, and 4 insane cats. I’m an animal-lover, and spend hours every week working in my garden. My interests include politics, good movies and curling up with a good book.
