Linda Marsicano


Linda Marsicano quit a full-time public relations careerwhen her identical twins Reese and Gracie were born in 2007. Shesoon realized that sitting at home with two babies was slowlydriving her mad, so she made it a goal to try out everykid-friendly venue in Chicago, which she chronicles in herChicago Parent Good-to-Go column. Linda is alsoa regular contributor to Going Places magazine where she writesabout family-friendly travel destinations. If you spot her on aplane with her (loud, unruly) children, she suggests youimmediately find a seat as far away as possible, or perhapsde-board altogether.
