peek at any garden on a day like today reveals the amazing dichotomy that occurs with seasonal regularity around SW Lake County: tender green shoots poking through snow. When this happens we, of course, worry whether spring will ever arrive. Some may even shake a fist and curse climate change. The fact is spring will come. Green shoots survive. Resilience, resolution and adaptability matters. All three of these traits help to define the Women of Distinction profiled in this issue. Toss in smarts, toughness, charity and service and you’ll see why we are so pleased to bring their stories to you. I’d also add good humor and a sense of adventure because the photo shoot directed by our editor, Stephen Neilson, at the marvelous Barrington White House was a lot of fun. If you have yet to attend an event at The White House please do so soon. It is a super stylish, gracious venue that we are lucky to have in our midst. We’re also lucky that a first-time contributor, Aimée Mazzenga, is bringing us her sense of style. Aimée is a

ARTICLE AND PHOTOGRAPHY AIMÉE MAZZENGA


THIS HOME WAS TRANSFORMED FROM THE GROUND UP TO BE A CALM AND COLLECTED NEUTRAL HAVEN. Designers Clare Kennedy Above At the center of the home is the warm and inviting living room. Three towering steel doors offer perfect views of the perfectly landscaped backyard. Left The sunroom off the kitchen fills with the most gorgeous light at day’s end; the large custom pendants and white linen chairs lend an airy feel.

and Mitzi Maynard of Redo Home and Design partnered with the home owners to make the minimalist architecture feel livable, inviting and collected. Once the home was finished, I brought the story to life and the home to a wider audience through my lens. As an interior photographer, my aim is to capture spaces as our natural eye takes them in. Shooting only with natural light allows me to survey how the light moves through the space. As an artist, my work is most inspired by light, whether waking up early to capture a space right before the sun peeks through the windows or capturing the light in my own home as it dances through the rooms in the early hours of the day. To see more of Aimée Mazzenga’s work, follow along with her on Instagram @aimeemazzenga or visit her website at aimeemazzenga.com.

Nancy Loo WGN-TV REPORTER BIGGEST INFLUENCES? In junior high, I set a goal of becoming a journalist. As a teenager, I wrote an essay about Barbara Walters, the most prominent woman on television at the time. I got to tell her about it personally when I worked at WABC-TV in New York during the 1990s. She was gracious, friendly and encouraging. However, my biggest influences are my parents: first-generation immigrants who ran a Chinese restaurant for three decades to send me and my two brothers to college. Their work ethic continues to drive me. HOW DO YOU UNWIND? I love all getaways… workouts… Nexflix bingewatching… and reading.

I started my consulting practice when I was just 30 years old, and might not have had the courage without Dad’s support. My mom taught me to laugh (which I’m known to do to the point of crying).
