Illinois ConnectionWhile I was born in Missouri, I consider the Chicago area home. My sons were educated in Downers Grove, and I now live in Lisle. I love the western suburbs. I worked at Nicor Gas in public and investor relations before joining Bell Labs (now Lucent Technologies. ) My PR career at AT&T spanned 11 years and included helping spearhead PR internationally when AT&T had it short foray into the commercial computer marketplace. My presentations and imaging skills were honed by helping AT&T excutives polish their communication skills. I started my own speaking, training, and coaching business 20 years ago.
