Linda Marsicano

Linda Marsicano quit a full-time public relations career when her identical twins Reese and Gracie were born in 2007. She soon realized that sitting at home with two babies was slowly driving her mad, so she made it a goal to try out every kid-friendly venue in Chicago, which she chronicles in her Chicago Parent Good-to-Go column. Linda is also a regular contributor to Going Places magazine where she writes about family-friendly travel destinations. If you spot her on a plane with her (loud, unruly) children, she suggests you immediately find a seat as far away as possible, or perhaps de-board altogether.
