hamiltonfamily2I hold a CPA license, a BA in Economics and Political Science, an MBA in Finance from NYU’s Stern School of Business, and a background in International Corporate Finance.  I have experience shaping the financial futures of businesses similar in size to the College of DuPage.

As part of our community, I serve as a Director of the Salt Creek Ballet, as an Associate Director for the Children’s Dyslexia Center of Metropolitan Chicago.  I love music and play violin for the Salt Creek Chamber Orchestra.

I have been married to my husband John for nearly 20 years. We have two children, Sam and Elizabeth. Sam will be attending Northwestern University in the fall and Elizabeth attends Hinsdale Central. Both my children love gymnastics and are members of the Red Devils Gymnastics team.

As a mother of two teenagers, I have learned much about how to help the young people of our community achieve their hopes and dreams. I am firmly committed to building an educational system that is second to none, by ensuring that the:

• education is ACCESSIBLE to all

• curriculum is RELEVANT to the needs of DuPage, Cook, and Will County

• educators are held ACCOUNTABLE for their work

If elected as a College of DuPage Trustee, I will work tirelessly to achieve these ends. Our community will be the better with someone who listens and acts. That is my commitment to you.
