Raised in the melting pot of Joliet, IL (near Chicago), family was a big part of my upbringing. I always felt safe, proud of my heritage and our traditions including food, faith & ancestry. I realize not everyone is fortunate enough to have had a stable upbringing and I hope to make a difference in the lives of local foster children to help them experience that stability.
I met my husband during the summer of 1982. It was an instant connection and is to this day. As soon as I finished university, we were married and have since raised 2 amazing daughters who are both sweet, smart and working professionals. Each also recently married their sweethearts. We've moved several times over the years, but really enjoy KC, so returned here a couple years ago.
As someone passionate about children, looking to make a positive, sustainable difference in our area, I'm very excited to join KC Kansas Angels. Having spent 32 years in the corporate world, I'm ready to bring that experience to this organization as Corporate Communications Director.
