  • In Chicago, you’ll find me: at Wrigley Field cheering on #44. Eating Indian food on Devon. Boating or paddle boarding on Lake Michigan. Watching my kids play sports while I nervously eat Twizzlers.

  • When I’m not at Wildlight, you’ll find me: teaching yoga in the Loop, riding my bike on the lakefront, resentfully running marathons, spending time with my family while exploring our amazing city or escaping to one of my two favorite islands: Mackinac and Isla Mujures.
