Member Since 2022
I was raised in a community where actual frozen deer had a second life as lawn ornaments during Christmas. My escape at 16 was through a congressionally funded scholarship to Germany. These early years informed my proudest moment in 2020 when my business earned B CORP certification. Doing business with community, people and the planet in mind matters to me and informs how we behave with the large, multi-national businesses we support. Today, I live in Chicago in a restored municipal bath house with my life partner and a needy cat.
