The opportunity to serve the wonderful residents of our community has always been a passion for me, as has been evident in both my professional and personal life. As a local Firefighter/Paramedic for over 25 years, and also serving as the Public Education Officer at the Fire District, I have had the opportunity to see the best and worst times for the residents in DuPage County. Whether it’s a horrible fire, vehicular accident, or medical emergency when our residents need the most help, or providing safety education to pre-schoolers or discussing senior fire and fall safety to our older residents, I have first-hand contact on an everyday basis with the real people who live here.

I also am currently serving in my 4th term in the position of Carol Stream Village Trustee. In this capacity, I am fortunate to have opportunities to speak with residents about the needs of our community. My experience and compassion in this role have allowed me to take serving our residents to a whole new level, which I hope to continue to do in an even greater role as a your representative on the DuPage County Board.
