I am a 43-year-old Elmhurst mother of three kids: Sophie, 15, Lucas, 13, and Olivia, 11. I grew up in Flossmoor and spent most of my free time with my three siblings at our family's Italian restaurant in Chicago Heights. I graduated from Loyola University with a degree in English in 1990, and I used that degree to acquire my English husband in a bar in Chicago called Max Tavern. My husband, Peter, and I moved to London together after knowing each other two months and were married within the year. We raised our kids in England for 11 years and moved to Elmhurst in 2005 to let them experience the great city of Chicago, lemonade stands and people who pack your groceries for you. We love Elmhurst and have never looked back!
