My first job:
I worked scooping ice cream at an old-fashioned ice cream parlor in my hometown of Dundee, Illinois.
Best advice I’ve ever received:
Focus on these three things and you will be fine: Presence, balance, and humility.

I’m most proud of:
Our children, Matt and Sara. They are great people and give me hope.
Machu Picchu, Peru
Traveling to Ireland with our extended family.
Staying balanced while being pulled in many directions.
My inspiration comes from:
A wise Jesuit priest who married us, and who continues to mentor me.
