As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I’m not sure I had any ideas, but I became a dental hygienist and then a dental office manager.

Favorite charity? Northern Illinois Food Bank in Geneva and the Alzheimer’s Association

What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I bumped into the actress Celeste Holm in a Fannie Mae candy store in Chicago. I looked at her, and she looked at me and she knew I knew who she was. She whispered, “Please don’t tell.” And I whispered back, “I won’t.” She just wanted to buy candy.
