Q: What is your favorite thing about Chicago?
“Definitely the people–I’ve lived in Chicago for 10 years now and even after all of my traveling it’s always nice to come back to Chicago. The people of Chicago have amazing camaraderie…people will still hold the door for you!”
Q: Why is Chicago Gateway Green an important part of Chicago?
“Chicago Gateway Green is an organization that does so much, yet it so under-appreciated! People just see a clean city and don’t think about how it gets that way.”
Q: You’re co-chairing this year’s 21st annual Green Tie Ball. What ties do you have to the event? (no pun intended)
“I’ve been to lots of events in the city–it was how I found my way when I first moved here and going to the events allowed me to build my client base. Green Tie Ball was one of the first events I went to in Chicago. I still remember my dress and everything…it’s very sentimental to me.”
