I am currently in my second term as Alderwoman for the city. I have been a resident in Palos Hills since 1999. My daughter attended Palos East, Palos South and graduated from Stagg High School. The community that we live in is very important to me and that is the reason that I chose to run for Alderwoman in our wonderful city. I have served on the PFA (Parent/Faculty Association) when my daughter was attending both Palos East and Palos South. I have also been an active member of the community by volunteering.

I am honored to be the Chairperson for the Golf Course, Parks and Recreation, Planning and Zoning and I am a member of the Economic Development Committee. Being a chairperson of these committees gives me an opportunity to bring ideas forward and enhance the committees for our residents.

Alderwoman Donna O’Connell and I are dedicated to the residents of our 5th Ward. If there is anything that we can do or if there are any concerns that you may have, please do not hesitate to reach out. We are happy to offer assistance.
