Born in Chicago the metro area. I have 2 children Peter and Laura ('02) and 6 grandchildren. Ryan ('23), Elissa ('25), Sam ('31), Lily, Caleb and Violet. After working in the Corporate World for 25 yrs (Illinois Bell, AT&T, Lucent, Chicago Realty Partners and RE/MAX Suburban) I am now blessed to serve these past 5 years at Timothy Christian Elementary School as administrative support to Dr. Tim Hoeksema. My muse is singing acapella harmony for the past 9 yrs with The Village Vocal Chords and singing in my Church worship band.
