Personal Statement
Having moved to the Evanston area at the age of 9, I have always loved to see the historic buildings and houses, to the point where recently acquiring a 100-year-old home near the downtown area. When we created Escalante's Boutique from our home, we always wanted to be in the middle of Main Street, eventually moving into the Blythe & Fargo building, with all its rich history. When the opportunity came to open Ana's on Main Street within the same building in 2013, we jumped at the opportunity.
Over the years I worked directly with the Main Street Promotions and Urban Renewal to help promote activities downtown, so when the position to become a board member became available in 2018, I eagerly submitted my application and was thrilled to be accepted.
The future growth and success for Evanston's Main Street and downtown area is first for foremost to me, not only as a business owner, but also as a member of this community. I look forward to working with the whole community to foster ideas combined with my own dreams to make this a destination experience in the region.
