Much More Than My Work

I serve on the Board of Directors of the Chicago Deferred Exchange Company, a Wintrust company that is a nationally recognized authority on Section 1031 Like-Kind Exchanges.

Outside of the office, I spend my time burning energy in a yoga sculpt class and exploring all that my hometown of Chicago has to offer, usually with my two pups Winston and Bisous. Family and friends call me “Zagat” because I love trying new restaurants. You can always rely on me for a great restaurant recommendation, no matter the occasion.
