Meet Angela | Office Coordinator
Angela is Dr. John’s wife and joined the front desk team about 2 years ago after both of the children were away working on their education. After she graduated from Marquette University, she taught Fifth grade, worked as a legal assistant at a major law firm and ultimately attended De Paul University law school. She practiced law until the birth of their first child and then became a stay at home mom while their 2 children were in school.
