Secretary - Debbie Norton
We welcome new members; contact us to apply.
Past-President - Cynthia Cobb
independent Tastefully Simple Consultant
New 2013 Vice-President
We have availed ourselves of the services of many members of The Women’s Business Exchange and believe wholeheartedly in their vision and selection of members.
Specifically, Carol Hannigan has been instrumental in helping us understand the legal issues in real estate and estate planning. Her expertise and demeanor are very assuring to those of us who find the law intimidating. We have since moved out of her area of practice but we wish we could clone her and bring her down to the southwest with us.
Likewise, Kathy Allen is superb in financial planning. Our finances in the past few years have been complex and she adroitly navigates the tax code and financial instruments with ease. She’s a great asset to have and we have complete confidence and trust in her to guide us through the financial maze.
Marge Harris was key in helping us sell our home in this current market of upheaval and uncertainty. She nudged us in the right direction and, giving us the insight of her real estate acumen, we were able to sell our home quickly and with ease. Thank you Marge!

"It is easy to watch the Robin Bengtson's Dog Stars and want to take them home with you. Each scout was truly in love with one dog or another. The dogs behave the way you would like your own to behave. A fun and happy time for Cub Scouts." -- Chuck Kirchoff, Cub Master Pack 32, Berwyn, IL
"Kathy Allen took the time to ask about our life goals, not just about money. She sparked conversations between us making us really think about how we wanted to live during our retirement. Now we really look forward to retirement." -- Warren and Liz F., Grayslake
