Outside of Burns, I can be found:
Bartending on the weekends and spending time with my husband, friends, and my pets! I also love to eat out and try different restaurants around the great city of Chicago!

What is it about celebrities, music, and pop culture that fascinates me?
Everything! I’m intrigued with how celebrities live their lives, good and bad! I love most genres of music and at times, find it as an escape from reality-hearing that song you haven’t heard in years that reminds you of a special time or that song that makes you want to get up and dance!
