My husband, Frank, and I moved to Northbrook from Katy, Texas in 2019 with our four children. Originally from Australia, we enjoy the four-season weather in Chicago and love the local community we are raising our children in. When I am not at work, you will find me spending time with my children playing sports, running, or relaxing at the lake. I am also an active volunteer at my children’s schools.
