I am honored to be able to introduce myself. I have lived in Lake Bluff my whole life. I went to St. Mary’s grade school and Lake Forest High School. During this time I have amassed many friends and a long list of who to call when something breaks, so much so, I have the reputation for “ask Marie she’ll know someone”! I love village life in Lake Bluff and our small-town celebrations, Halloween in particular. Lake Bluff really knows how to do Halloween.
Four years ago I started a Halloween Costume drive for children in need and to date have collected and donated over 1000 costumes to schools and organizations in the North Chicago/ Waukegan areas. I’m passionate about my family; I have two daughters, Jennifer who lives in Chicago with her husband Joe, and Ashlee, who lives in Lake Bluff with her husband JP. I enjoy antiquing with my friends and baking. I bake every day sometimes late into the night. I get great pleasure in treating my friends and passionately believe life is just better with chocolate!
