Interests

Most of my time away from work is focused on spending time with my family and friends.

I have completed two marathons (Chicago, New York City) and one half-marathon, along with various other races.

I actively volunteer in the community, primarily thru my involvement with the St. Charles Kiwanis Club. The mission of Kiwanis is to serve the children of the world. By working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. When you give a child the chance to learn, experience, dream, grow, succeed and thrive, great things happen.
