A small village like Riverside thrives when you have people dedicated to giving back to the community. Luckily, we have that in spades here and my guest today is another great example.
Aberdeen Marsh-Ozga's advocacy for Riverside is apparent through her involvement in numerous Riverside-related organizations & projects. She also recently became the Board Chair of Visit Oak Park, a regional tourism agency that helps to market Riverside as a covered community.
In our conversation, we discuss Aberdeen's roots in Michigan and how her family found their way to Riverside, her work on Riverside's Preservation Commission, her involvement with the Olmsted Society, and her new role as the Board Chair of Visit Oak Park. You'll also hear the genuine passion she shares for all things Riverside.
I hope you enjoy my conversation with our neighbor Aberdeen Marsh-Ozga.
Adversity is a part of life and the only part we can control is how we handle it. It is clear to me based on our recent conversation that our neighbor Rory Dominick only knows one way to handle adversity and that is to tackle it head on.
Rory is a real estate agent & owner of Rory & Co., a real estate practice that specializes in helping buyers & sellers in the western suburbs of Chicago. In addition to her work in real estate, Rory is also the executive director of the Cameron Can Foundation which helps support families of special needs children battling neurological diseases.
In our conversation, we discuss Rory's roots in Michigan and her background in advertising, how she found her way to real estate when she was ready to start a family, and how navigating her family's challenges raising a special needs child led her to start the Cameron Can Foundation to pay it forward to other families in need.
I really enjoyed my conversation our neighbor Rory Dominick. I hope you do too.
One of my favorite parts of our small town is watching neighbors come together to create cool things right here in Riverside. That's exactly what the Big Chill crew along with Riverside Parks & Recreation has done each winter since 1998 in creating & maintaining the Riverside Community Ice Rink at Big Ball Park.
Weather permitting, the rink is open for 8 am to 9 pm everyday. Be sure to check out this community gem this winter as there's plenty of days left to get your family out on the ice.
