I bring deep market experience and perspective in the north suburban market and a passion for bringing two Middle Market parties together for a successful outcome. I thoroughly enjoy the marketing and financial analysis aspect of each opportunity.

While my family and career are certainly fulfilling, my greatest sense of accomplishment is through my leadership at “Summer of a Lifetime,” a Noble Network Charter School program. Each summer, we provide 1,000 scholarships for pre-college on campus summer programs for first generation to college students from some of Chicago’s most challenged neighborhoods.
