About Me
I was born and educated in England. After graduating from Bristol University I worked in the fashion industry as a buyer for Peter Robinson in London. I then spent 4 years as a stewardess with British Airways before marrying and moving to Hong Kong, Tokyo, Toronto and then to USA where I have lived for the past 28 years in Lake Bluff. I am an active member of the community currently working for Lake Forest Infant Welfare Society. In the past I have been on the board of the Winter Club, Lake Forest College Women's Board chair, and Church of Holy Spirit committees. I enjoy all sports from playing paddle tennis, squash, golfing, tennis and hiking. I love the outdoors and would love to introduce you to the delights of the North Shore of Chicago. Even though I have lived in the USA for 30 years you'll notice my English accent still shines through!
