Hi, my name is Mary Lou Rak. I have been with Amata for approximately 2 years as a client consultant. This is a new and exciting endeavor for me, as I have 16 years of experience in legal marketing at a large firm in the City. I love coming to work at Amata each day because of the warm and friendly environment and I truly enjoy the one-on-one interaction with the clients; whereas, in the past, I was usually behind the scenes.
I was born and raised on the southwest side of Chicago. I love living in a big City, you are definitely never alone and there is so much to do!
I adore and love animals! Growing up we always had a cat or dog. They truly are part of the family and even now as an adult I have a cat and dog. My cat, “Squeaky” and my grand-dog always are around and I spoil them rotten!
I enjoy taking casual walks and bike riding! One of my goals this year is to take many bike rides along the lake! I recently joined a gym and this is now part of my weekly routine and it keeps me in great shape!
I am truly blessed with wonderful friends and family! We enjoy trying out new restaurants in the City as well as catching a new movie at the theater! Everyone loves theater popcorn; I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t! Although I like to go out, I sometimes enjoy being at home watching an old movie cuddled up in a blanket with a glass of wine!
