“Recovery is about progress not perfection” remains my mantra.

I have lived in Wilmette for over 25 years with my husband, Ray, and our three grown sons. For 30 years, I have worked as an Executive Assistant to a North Shore family with many different responsibilities including preparing financial and tax data, managing multiple homes and offices, paying office and home employees, coordinating travel and expenses for both the business and the family. These are just some of the balls I juggle every day in addition to whatever additional surprises pop up.

In my free time, I enjoy sharing my love of healthy cooking, crafting, cycling and long walks. I actively participate in Families Anonymous and lend support to individuals or families with loved ones struggling with addiction and mental health in their lives.

I feel our community is very fortunate to have Providence Farm as a steppingstone to young men on their road to recovery. I am honored and excited to put my personal story and professional skills to work for Providence Farm and the families seeking to restore health and happiness to their lives.
