Bloggers

Sassy, sincere and super-duper smart, Wendy Widom brings heart in her quest to connect Chicago families. When Wendy's not coffeeshop-hopping for meetings with local business leaders, she's reliving her Peace Corps days in Poland at a buffet on Milwaukee Avenue, dancing to the Lion King Broadway soundtrack with her hubby and daughter, watching bad reality TV on the elliptical, or walking along Lake Michigan at sunset.  Prior to Mom-ville, Wendy earned a BA from the University of Florida and a MA in Organizational Psychology from Columbia University.
