What is your favorite thing about working for Custom One?
My love for custom home building started in 1987 when I had the opportunity to join the team of a high-end custom home architect-builder in the Chicago area. The experience I gained at this now 4th generation family business educated me in all areas of custom home building. I appreciate that I am encouraged to share my knowledge and make a valuable contribution at Custom One Homes. My favorite thing about working for Custom One Homes is being a part of the team!
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my four adult children. I often visit friends and family back home in Illinois, where I am an Advisory Board Member of my High School Alumni Foundation. Go Lions! My perfect day includes a hike at one of the many beautiful local parks. I was a kettlebell instructor for ten years. Although I no longer teach, I look forward to my workout time with my bells.
What is your favorite food?
Italian or surf & turf with a good Caesar salad.
What is your favorite restaurant?
Being from Chicago area I have to mention Portillo’s for their Italian beef. A local favorite is Punch Pizza (Caesar salad).
