I am an Independent Writing and Editing Professional.
I also am the author of At Home with Merle Burleigh, which is published weekly on the City of West Chicago’s website, westchicago.org. It chronicles the community life of West Chicago.
As a resident of West Chicago for more than 40 years, I know this is a great community with residents who care for each other and offer assistance whenever needed.
I volunteer for various organizations, civic committees different community events events. These include Kruse House Museum, West Chicago Historical Society, Railroad Days, West Chicago City Museum and Western DuPage Chamber.
To honor my role in promoting the community, the chamber selected me as the Grand Marshal in 2010 for Railroad Days.
