Meet Our Board Of Directors
I grew up just a few houses away from Ridge Park where I spent a majority of my childhood. My husband and I love raising our family in Beverly. When they say, it takes a village to raise a family, there is no better village to be a part of than Beverly. We have four daughters, Maggie, Mae, Molly, and Maura and we are parishioners of St. Barnabas, where two of our daughters attend pre-school. I am a graduate of Christ the King Grammar School and Mother McAuley High School. I graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder with a degree in Business Administration, Management. I am truly excited to be part of an organization that focuses on constantly improving our neighborhood and bringing the community together.

I was born and raised in Beverly and attended St. Barnabas and Mother McAuley. Post college, I spent five years in New York but returned to Chicago with my husband in 2012. When the time came to settle down and raise our family we decided to move back to Beverly, as so many do. Currently, I am a local Realtor and Interior Designer. I love working with clients to find their next dream home in a neighborhood so near and dear to my heart. I’ve been involved with the BRHA since 2015. I am so proud to be a part of a local organization that gives back to our community and works on family friendly events to help the values of our community thrive.
I was born and raised in Beverly and attended St. Barnabas. I graduated from Mother McAuley high school and went on to earn my bachelors of science in finance from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. I have spent the majority of my career in commercial real estate and work at First Eagle Bank where I am a commercial lending officer. After college, I moved out of state for over a decade but returned to raise our family in my hometown in 2014. My husband and I have two children, Cole and Reese, and are parishioners at St. Barnabas. I love the community and history Beverly offers and am proud to serve on the board of an organization that seeks to support our beautiful neighborhood.
I joined the BRHA Board as secretary in 2017. I have enjoyed getting to know more people in the community and engaging in community events through the BRHA. I was born and raised on the southside in Morgan Park, and after spending several years in the South Loop, my husband and I thought there would be no better place to raise our growing family than the southside! It is wonderful to live in a family-friendly community that has so much to offer. I look forward to continuing to become involved in the community through the BRHA!
