I am a Michigan native and received my bachelor’s degree from Eastern Michigan University. I originally moved to Quincy in the Spring of 2016. My husband and I decided to move to Chicago in the Fall of 2017. After a long Chicago winter, my husband and I began to miss the quality of life we had in Quincy, IL so we began to develop a plan to make it back here. We both found opportunities to come back to Quincy IL in February 2019. Since coming back, I have been able to get involved volunteering within the community. I am the Board Vice President of the Historical Society of Quincy & Adams County, Chair of the Young Professionals of Quincy, I am also involved with the District & Chamber of Commerce. I love supporting the local community and is excited to share my love and passion for our beautiful city with you.
