Laura. 1 Grandchild, Taylor
Education: Graduate of University of Wisconsin - Whitewater. BA in Accounting with emphasis in Tax Law
I’ve lived in Wheeling: Since 1974
Hobbies: Collecting scale model cars, crystal figurines, sports paraphernalia (especially any items associated with the Green Bay Packers and Wisconsin Badgers), listening to Jazz Music and helping other people.
I ran for Wheeling Village Trustee because I believe that the Village of Wheeling is a fantastic place to live and raise a Family and that I can help to ensure that that is always the case for generations to come.
For me the the most important thing about being an elected official is to listen to the residents and to always be honest and upfront with everyone that I come in contact with, no hidden agendas, no preconceived notions.
My favorite village event is the 4th of July celebrations.
When I'm not working, I like to spend time at home with Family and Friends or volunteer to help others.
I belong to the Knights of Columbus and I am a past Director and member of the National association of Accountants.
In the next ten years I would love to see a movie theater and or a sports complex with batting cages, an ice rink and possibly a bowling alley be developed in our Village. Other than that, I hope our Village continues to be dominated by hard working, honest and friendly residents.
The person who has influenced me most in my life is my Wife. She may not realize it, but before I make any major decisions, I discuss it with her to get her reaction.
My favorite quotation is "JUST DO IT".
Before I was a Trustee I was a member of St. Joseph the Worker School Board, the Wheeling Special Events Committee and the Wheeling Police Pension Board.
