Barb ~ I am the best mother and spouse I can be, an attorney, an entrepreneur and an athlete. While fulfilling my treasured role as a mom to two boys, I have transitioned career paths from federal prosecutor and press secretary at the U.S. Attorney’s Office here in Chicago to my entrepreneurial years as a Media Relations Professional and now owner and founder of Game On! Sports Camp 4 Girls. I never stopped working.
My message to girls and women is that you need not feel wedged; First of all, strive to integrate a passion into your career. Then, don’t be afraid to change in accordance with your stage in life. At one point, I needed to have more flexibility to support my family, so I dug deep for the courage and confidence needed to establish my own business that incorporated my strengths, experience and passion. Then when my boys were old enough and with the support of my husband, I earned the right to pursue my DREAM. Game On! Summer Sports Day Camps 4 Girls was born and continues to be my vehicle for giving back to girls sports in return for the life-changing benefits I received from years of sports play.
