Illinois ConnectionI was born in Woodstock, Virginia and lived in Falls Church, Virginia until I married and moved to LaGrange Park, IL. I received three associates from College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, IL; a B. A. in Organizational Communication from Elmhurst College, Elmhurst, IL; and a M. S. in Written Communication at National-Louis University in Evanston, IL. I wrote three printings of the Chicagoland Trail Guide, 1993-95-96. There were no books available on trails in the Chicagoland area so I decided to write the first one.
