penguin chick pictureHI EVERYBODY!!

This page will tell you about one of my two best friends, Angie Barker! I really like her a lot, and I'll bet you will too.

See you later!

Name:  Angela R. Barker
Whereabouts:  Chicago, IL


My bio in a nutshell – I’m originally from south-central Michigan, specifically Jackson, even more specific, Napoleon, where I graduated high school in 1988.  Go Pirates!  I then attended JCC over a course of three years, both full and part time.  I was also working at the A&W Drive-in in Michigan Center, which I left after twelve years in 1998.  I then worked for a propane gas company, in the office, for eight months before moving to Chicago and getting married.

Once here in the Windy City, I’m only on my third job in the last seven years.  For a year and a half, I was a billing clerk at the Financial Relations Board.  I left there to join a friend at Jordan Mozer & Associates doing accounting and administrative work for the architecture firm.  Currently, I was fortunate enough to get a position at one of the oldest and most prestigious law firms in Chicago, Kirkland & Ellis, as a billing assistant.  I absolutely love this job and the people I’m working with.  It was the smartest move I ever made.

Phil and I got married on September 3rd, 1999, in Jackson.  After many attempts and subsequent health issues it looks as though children are not in our future.  But our cat, Sunkist, certainly fills that void.  We keep busy with work and on the weekends, going to the movies or shopping.  I’ve also belonged to a Curves for almost two years.  It has helped me maintain my weight loss and I’ve made a couple of good friends, too.  It’s a nice environment to workout in.  Give their website a gander and see if it’s something you’re interested in joining.
