    About our speaker:

    My story is like many of us who grew up on Chicago’s Southwest Side and throughout the suburbs, where my grandfather worked as a union mechanic for Braniff Airlines at Midway International Airport. Like many others, my dad, both grandfathers, and my uncles all served our country in the U.S. Army and Marines. My other grandfather, a union carpenter, built a double desk for me and my sister to study so we might be among the first in my family to go to college. I still use that desk today.

    Born at Little Company of Mary Hospital and raised in St. Barnabas Parish, I learned from an early age the importance of staying engaged in my community. As I grew up, my family relocated to Palos Park, where I attended Carl Sandburg High School and worked at Orland Square Mall.

    To cover my college tuition at Marquette University, I signed up for a work-study program, cleaning at the Food Service and hitting the books in between. I then attended the University of Wisconsin, where I graduated in four years, while also completing five internships.

    I worked my way up to become a partner in one of the largest ad agencies in the U.S. and later left to start my own successful consulting business.

    When one of my children was severely bullied in school, I founded a national non-profit program called “Team Up To Stop Bullying” with my partner, Sears, to address the problem—ultimately expanding it nationwide. I worked directly with state and federal legislators to make anti-bullying policies a priority and wrote a book designed to provide solutions for both parents and schools that is in use across the country. I have also served as a state and national advocate for health care rights, income equality, LGBTQ+ rights, and common-sense gun safety.

    The Third District needs a coalition builder and a fighter for workers, their families, and the middle-class. We need an advocate to grow small businesses, protect health care rights, and serve as a champion for education and training programs that lead to real jobs to move our district forward. I strongly believe in reducing health care and prescription drug costs, guarding Social Security, restoring workers’ rights, protecting women’s health care, caring for our veterans, and keeping Medicare safe.
