Lake Forest’s Dominique Ittner lives in her hometown with husband, Kevin, their two active boys, Wells and Winn, and new puppy, Walker. Ittner’s first career found her teaching elementary education at the School of St. Mary, while her second has her staying home to educate her boys. Family time and traditions are what mean the most to her. Ittner’s sunny disposition is reflected in a new side business that keeps limbs bronzed even in the snowiest of months.
