I'm proud to have been born and raised right here in Chicago, and be blessed with adorable identical twins with my amazing husband, Roger.
As a graduate of Chicago Public Schools, I'm now a successful small business owner in Albany Park. I work hard to advocate for my clients every day, and I get to help a lot of Chicago businesses stay in business. I'm blessed to do something I love for a living. But I worked hard to get here. As a small business owner I know what it means to make a payroll, to deal directly with Washington, DC politicians who are out of touch, and who continue to put too large a burden on middle class Chicago families and on local small business owners.
I feel very lucky that some of my first memories of my family, right here in Chicago, were watching my parents Dave, a 3rd generation business owner, and Pam, a Chicago Public School Teacher, be politically active. They fought for fairer treatment for working families, and they fought to help keep our neighborhoods safe, and I know my passion for public service and investing in my community comes from their good example. I'm grateful for that.
I am the President and Co-Founder of The Insurance People, an insurance practice located in the heart of Chicago that serves middle class families and small business. I take pride in what I do and strive to give the best customer service and competitive pricing. We take an educational approach to insurance allowing families and businesses to make the best decisions for themselves, family and business.
My personal specialty is health insurance. I am well versed in the Affordable Care Act and am passionate about helping every day people access affordable healthcare on and off the exchange. I am a leader within Land of Lincoln Health, Illinois' health insurance co-op that helps small business and women access better healthcare.
My family and I are middle class, and I try to live those values of giving back to the community and supporting the small businesses that create the majority of the good jobs in our economy. I serve on the Board of the Small Business Advocacy Council (SBAC) where I am Chair of the Education Committee and Co-Chair of the Women's Committee, where we actively work on creating access to affordable, dependable health care and keeping businesses here in Chicago.
I run an non-profit organization called Mom+Baby. Mom+Baby is a group of working and stay at home moms that support one another to be our best. Our group encourages children ages 0-5 to create friendships at young ages through monthly events and gatherings.
Through monthly events, online engagement and friendship we can do big things! Mom+Baby is focused on making a local and national impact on the well being of moms and kids through advocacy. When we support kids and women during child bearing years we support a brighter future.
