Bio

I grew up in a suburb of Chicago offering a rich background in the performing arts. I had a wonderful Mom and Dad and two older sisters, one of which is still living. After college I married my husband Jeff. We just celebrated 36 years of marriage.

We have a talented and wonderful son and daughter who are both now successfully on their own.

We also have two lovable dogs: Sherlock and Watson, both rescued from shelters.
