I am a native Peorian with a love for helping people, especially seniors. My late mother reminded me many times that if I lived as long as she did I would get old. I try to live by the golden rule "do unto others as you would like them to do to you,".
I love reading, traveling, yoga and doing community service projects. There are not many people I don't know in Central Illinois. But it is always exciting to meet new faces whether on the job or off.
I have a bachelors degree in Journalism from Bradley University and started my career at a radio station in Buffalo, NY. I spent 11 years working in Upstate New York before returning to Central Illinois in 1999. It's been wonderful being home with family and relatives. The best is yet to come.
