My 40 years of experience of being an accountant in various industries. I also well trained in implementing lean management without services being diminished. I have been on numerous boards, and find solutions are more important then rehashing past mistakes.

I grew up in Island Lake and I’ve been able to see it grow and progress throughout my life. I want to see it continue to grow and progress. Professionally, I’ve spent time volunteering to help underprivileged people in Chicago. It’s important to me to try and help out as many people as I can. Also, my experiences as an attorney and throughout my schooling have allowed me to communicate with people from all walks of life and with a wide array of viewpoints that differ from my own.

As a lifelong resident of the Village of Island Lake, I have acquired intimate knowledge of the parks, businesses, and residents of our community. With a career in administrative sales, I have a natural ability to effectively communicate with people while arriving at meaningful conclusions. As an Illinois State Scholar, I will dedicate myself in a swift and efficient fashion to further educate myself on the inner workings of local politics and to assist in leading the village in a favorable direction.
