Events & Finance Admin
While I am not originally from Illinois, I’ve lived in St. Charles for 23 years. I am very proud to live in such a Great community. I love all the things you can do and restaurant options we have to offer. Sitting outside, walking along the river and listening to live music is the Best! There is no place like St. Charles.
Senior Manager of Tourism & Sales
I've lived in St. Charles for 20 years, raised my 2 kids here & am extremely loyal to the community. I sometimes say, St. Charles runs through my veins. My favorite thing to do in STC is to listen to live music outside in the plaza for STC Live or Jazz Weekend!
Digital Marketing Strategist
Having lived in St. Charles my whole life, I have such a great appreciation for this city. Everywhere you go you feel a sense of community, and that togetherness is what makes St. Charles so special. I love the variety of businesses here — especially our local shops like Trend & Relic and Jeans & a Cute Top Shop!
Marketing Content Coordinator
I was born and raised in Batavia but I love the St. Charles community and everything this city has to offer. Some of my favorite things to do are to visit the breweries and restaurants downtown, and to take my bike for rides on the trails by the Fox River. I am so excited to be able to help St. Charles continue to flourish!
