Originally from Indianapolis, I moved to Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood in 2005 with my then-fiance, Kyle. Since that time, I’ve come to know and love this area inside and out. But in the beginning, it was tough to find the types of information I was seeking. As a naturally curious person, I wanted to know more about local organizations, neighborhood events/activities, and community engagement. After years of searching and exploring, I truly feel at home in my community. Now, my goal is to help others get settled here as well.
Let me save you the frustration, time, and effort I went through by sharing:
Suggestions for getting involved with your community
Volunteer opportunities with local non-profits
Ways to use neighborhood organizations to improve your daily life
Insights on places to enjoy with your little ones (kids and dogs)
Neighborly advice (avoiding parking tickets, taking advantage of Park District offerings, etc.)
Recommendations for shopping, dining, and entertainment
Whether you’ve decided on a new neighborhood or are still searching for the right fit, I’d love to be your guide.
