About Me

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.
