Hello friendly faces! It’s that time of the week! We’re back with a new CNSM Meet a Mom spotlight brought to you in part by Mary Gifford of Gifford Law. This week we’re are excited to introduce you to Deerfield mom of three sweethearts, and the sales and catering manager with Renaissance Chicago Glenview Suites Hotel, Irene Rozenberg!
When Irene isn’t hanging with the kids or at the Renaissance Suites Hotel in Glenview, she’s creating ‘spirited’ jewelry with fellow mom friend, Mel, a la their female-founded brand Show Your Spirit Designs. Get to know more about Irene, where she and the fam love to hang and what gets her through the tough days – hint: it’s in the hotel. Welcome, Irene!
Hi Irene! Please introduce yourself. Where are you from originally? What city do you live in now? What brought you here?
Hi, I’m Irene Rozenberg. I grew up in Niles, and moved to Northbrook with my family before high school. My husband and I bought our home in Deerfield 10 years ago. We wanted to stay close to our families. I have 3 kids ages 11, almost 7 and 5. We spend our weekends on the soccer field because all 3 kids play!
What are one or two fun facts to know about you?
A fellow North Shore mom and I own a business called Show Your Spirit Designs. We make custom jewelry and resin art pieces.
What are your favorite North Shore eats to frequent?
We LOVE Highwood. A few favorites are Froggy’s, Longitud 315 and Chicago Mike’s Ice Cream, which is now Billy Brick’s Pizza & Ice Cream.
What gets you through a tough day (ie. lots of coffee, yoga, meditation, wine, a good book, etc)?
Coffee! Our office is made of moms and we all start our day with a latte from the Starbucks in our hotel lobby!
