Senior Editor

Elizabeth Diffin spends most of her non-work time trying to be a "cool aunt" to her amazing nephews, Aidan and Jackson. She's excited to introduce them to the fun activities in and around Chicago and then return them and all their energy to their parents. Elizabeth received her Master's degree from Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism in March 2010. A Philadelphia native, she has lived in the Chicago area for nine years, but remains a rabid Phillies and Eagles fan, with apologies to the Cubs, Sox and Bears. Elizabeth loves pretty much everything about Chicago … except the winter.
