I am a wife to Greg and new mother to daughter Vivian. She has helped me rein in my TV addiction. When I am not at work, I am spending time with family, cooking or consuming all media. And I don't suffer from stage fright in the least! My alter-ego is on stage as much as she can be, whether it be singing in a band, taking the mic on karaoke night or working on a theater production.
At work, I plan, prepare and write for the Tribune's many special sections. When I want to be creative, I come up with logos and graphics. I also work with our design editor on pages each day, as well as help with reading copy. Oh, and every Monday, you can read about my mis-steps and successes in life on the Opinion Page.
