Guest Occupation: Former Personal Training group owner, Past Naperville, Illinois Chamber of Commerce President & now heading Benedictine Univ. Leadership program for undergraduate woman.
Guest Biography:

There is nothing that brings me more satisfaction than finding an area of need and filling it. I started my first business at 12 years old. I learned the importance of profit and loss, enthusiastic sales, and the value of great customer service! Understanding how to build and maintain a business, I began to seek opportunities to make a difference by creating opportunities for others. Here are a few highlights:

*In 1992, many of my friends complained about overcrowded gyms with clientele that made them feel uncomfortable. In 1993, I developed a unique private training studio model to address that concern. My business tripled in the first five years. My friends and many others found their fitness "home". With the studio's success, I traveled all over the world to lecture. Topics included: How to Start a Fitness Business, How to Lead Well, Creating a Winning Culture, and Marketing for Success. My speaking and writing career for the fitness industry continued to grow. I authored 4 books, and wrote numerous articles for magazines including, Prevention, Fitness and Real Simple. In 2012, I sold the business to discover my next opportunity.

*In 2013, the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce was looking for its next CEO. As the first woman in its 112 year history, I accepted the challenge to run the 2nd largest chamber in the state of Illinois. When I took the reigns, the organization was struggling. I was able to put together a great team. We focused on strategic planning, streamlined programing to bring more value to members, explored additional revenue sources via successful capital campaign, improved efficiencies with staff, strengthened partnerships with strategic alliances. I was fortunate to be part of rebuilding an organization.

*In January of 2020, I was recruited to develop a leadership program for undergraduate women at Benedictine University. Given the inequality with leadership roles and pay for women, I now have a chance to develop outstanding leaders driven to become agents of change for the good of all.

I believe in contributing to positive change, collaboration, and thinking strategically. I am passionate about leadership development, equality, public speaking/writing, relationship building, problem solving, and customer care.

Guest Occupation: Former Congressman from Virginia's 8th district
Guest Biography:

During his time in Congress, Rep. Jim Moran was a leader on the Appropriations Committee, bringing billions in economic investment to Northern Virginia to assist underserved communities – building up the region’s transportation infrastructure and creating thousands of jobs, particularly in the defense and intelligence communities.

Moran played a major role in funding the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Project, the Metro to Dulles, the widening of Route 1 to Fort Belvoir and the construction of numerous local road, bridge, environmental and public transit projects. The front page of the Washington Post cited the fact that “companies based in Representative James P. Moran’s district in Northern Virginia reaped $43 billion in federal contracts – roughly as much as the entire state of Texas.”

Moran was an outspoken opponent of the Iraq War from the very beginning and helped lead opposition in committee and on the floor to what he deemed a war of choice whose outcome would not strengthen American security, but rather align Iraq with the Shiite dominated Iran.

In 1996, he co-founded the New Democrats – one of the largest caucuses in the House. Through the New Dems, he has supported free and fair trade and has been active on a range of issues promoting a stronger, center-left vision for our nation’s economy.
 
Since 2016, Moran has served as the Senior Legislative Advisor at McDermott, Will and Emery. In March 2016, he was appointed Professor of Practice in the School of Public and International Affairs in the College of Architecture and Urban Studies at Virginia Tech.
