• Hello, I'm Shaily (shy-lee)

    Strategically opinionated Chicagoan on a mission to make people smile.


    How do I navigate this website? I list all sorts of things that I love to do for people. Take a peek at some of the fun adventures I share in the "what I do" section. You will learn so much and too much about me through this page. Have fun with it!

    "There is too much on this website." I know. It's nuts. I am okay with it. My website is always a work in progress. Just take it for what it is. If something sparks your interests, ask me about it. I don't bite. I would love to continue the conversation my website has sparked for you.
