I'm running to try to give back to the community in another capacity other than coaching. After coaching in Hoffman Estates for over 15 years and attending Hoffman High high school sports/events (my kids participated in 34/36 sports during high school)for years, my youngest is now off to college. I now have time to devote to helping make sure our Park District continues to be the outstanding resource /asset to the community as it has always been. I am a strong believer in student/athletes and the park district is the perfect place to start.
