Eileen O'Sullivan grew up on the south side of Chicago, as a young child of two Irish immigrants she developed an early attraction to language, stories and the written word.
Eileen gained the nick name "Jewel of all Trades" due to her broad interests and talents. Her first career with the airlines moved her to NYC for five years, later returning to Chicago and moving to Oak Lawn to raise her two young sons. Her colorful resume includes diverse titles such as; paralegal, programmer, bartender, counselor, analyst and researcher for a private detective agency, owner/operator of a small cleaning business, home health care provider, phlebotomist/clinical technician, currently she is a personal assistant to a growing clientele while beginning her adventures with blogging and working on her children's novel.
Eileen feels that the most challenging and fulfilling position she has yet to hold, the one she committed completely to from the moment of conception, was that of being a Mom. Her sons are now grown and becoming accomplished and successful in their own choosen fields. She feels her years of parenting provided her with the most enriching and rewarding experiences, educating and enhancing her life in ways she could not have imagined.
