About us

I was born in Chicago and raised in Elmwood Park, Illinois.  Graduated from Elmwood Park H.S. and received a B.S. at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville.  Worked for the Secretary of State in Illinois for 15 years.  Moved to Whitefish Bay in 1996 with my wonderful partner, Deb, of 20 years.  We started a family in 1999 and raised our 2 kids.  I've been a stay at home mom and active in the kids school and sports.

About our trip

We will be arriving in Suzhou, China on 6/15/11.  My two children,  Nicholas and Ali, Deb and Brenda (mother-in-law) will be staying in Suzhou Industrial Park.  Suzhou is one of the oldest cities in China, but SIP was built about 17 years ago.  It is the largest project built between China and the Singapore Government.  The city's canals, stone bridges, pagodas and gardens have contributed to its status as one of the top tourist attractions in China.  It sounds like it is the place to stay if you are traveling with your family. 

Deb will be staying for 3 months, the kids and I will stay for 2 months and Brenda will stay for 1 month.  Chris (Brother-in-law), will be coming to visit with the 2 oldest kids in July.  We plan to travel as much as possible during our stay.
