A Chicago native, I grew up on the north side of Chicago and the northern suburbs, moving to Lakeview upon graduating from The University of Kansas. I currently live near Wrigley Field with my husband, two children, and yellow lab. Volunteering and service has always been a part of my life and I am excited to be joining the Board of Lakeview Pantry where I can utilize my skills in a variety of ways, with a focus on fundraising. As a mother who works full time, it is important to me that I spend my time outside of family and work in a productive way, using my experience and network to help better the lives of those in need. I believe the Pantry is a valuable resource for our community and I am so proud to be serving the Pantry. Professionally, I am a Cloud Solution Specialist at Microsoft, with a focus on Mid-West CPG and Retail. Prior to that I spent three years at Pitney Bowes as General Manager/National Sales Director and 13 years at News Corporation as Vice President, Group Sales Manager.
