SIMPLE LIVING
As you are enjoying summer, we want to thank you for taking time out of your
day to read our community living magazine. We hope you are sitting poolside
as you glance through our pages while basking in the summer sun.
Each July we scale back our schedules a bit and focus more on simple living
giving our team time to spend with their families. We encourage our readers to
do the same, not letting one moment of summer pass them by. Whether this
means spending the day on the town with extended family, walking to the park
with the kids, or hanging out in their backyard planting flowers– whatever your
perfect summer day may be, we hope you enjoy many of them this summer.
Soon, it will be time to prepare for back-to-school and all of the
chaos and craziness that comes with it, so let’s take this month
to relax and simplify. Make those summer recipes you’ve
been saving on Pinterest. Try a class at that local yoga stu-
dio your friend has been raving about. Hop on the Metra
and enjoy a fun downtown attraction with the kids. What-
ever you do, simplify and enjoy! Thanks for reading.

JUDY MCBETH, DVM, CVA | Oswego
Fox Ridge Veterinary Clinic
Judy wanted to be a Vet ever since she was a little girl and read all the James
Herriott books, such as All Creatures Great and Small, and others he wrote.
She thought that his work was fascinating and liked his lifestyle, while also per-
sonally enjoying subject matters like biology and science, so becoming a Vet fit
perfectly.
Dr. McBeth incorporates holistic medicine and acupuncture, along with the use
of essential oils and deep tissue laser therapy mixed with western medicine to
care for pets in the community. She also uses her Traditional Chinese Veteri-
nary Medical skills to choose herbal blends that are best to heal the body, as
well as acupuncture for many conditions from pain management to seizures and
allergies.
She believes in minimizing daily stress and ensuring to always take care of one’s
self to protect our mental health. In her own personal life, she enjoys gardening,
scrapbooking, and jewelry making while diffusing essential oils such as Laven-
der, Peace and Calming, and Stress Away to maintain her tranquil lifestyle.
Giving back to the community is also a large part of her peace and Fox Ridge
Veterinary Clinic accepts donations for the Kendall County Community Pet Food
Pantry that provides food and supplies for over 1,200 dogs and cats monthly.

INFLUENCERS
TO KNOW
DEBBIE LADEUR | Naperville
Regional Vice President, Arbonne
Debbie loves cooking healthy recipes with her husband Jeff and three
boys, Luke (24), Andrew (22), and Nate (16); indulging in hot fudge sun-
daes; and then burning it all off as a Zumba instructor. Additionally, as
the Regional Vice President of Arbonne, she has a passion for helping
others feel better about their skin and overall health by sharing with them
the ease of simple choices to gain energy, lose weight, and feel great!
“You have one body that God gave you, when you take care of yourself,
eating healthy, using healthy products on your skin I believe you will live
a happier, fruitful life,” Debbie says. “When you feel good, it shows in all
aspects of your life.”
Since life is very busy, her favorite go-to snack is Arbonne’s delicious
chocolate protein shakes because they are quick to make, nutritious,
vegan and keep you full until lunch or dinner. She also loves organic
hardboiled eggs with avocado, or organic green apples since they have
less sugar than a red.
Debbie feels blessed to have helped people get off of prescription med-
ications, sleep better, think clearer, and find energy that they never
thought they could ever feel again! (Debbie is pictured Above)

GLENNA ARMESY | Sugar Grove
Earth’s Secret
After earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, Glenna pursued classes in
the study of Chinese Medicine and Macrobiotics and became a Certified Shi-
atsu Acupressure, Certified Herbalist, Certified Aromatherapy Specialist, and
Certified Healthy Lifestyle Coach.
“All of my past education has contributed to my journey to where I am today,”
she says. “I help educate clients to use herbal supplements, essential oils
and phytonutrients as alternatives for their own health care, and use botan-
icals, including essential oils to formulate Earth’s Secret products.”
Glenna, along with her husband and children make Pure Mineral Makeup,
Pure Skin Care products, and Pure soap products exclusively from pure min-
erals crushed into powder form and botanicals that have natural healing
qualities, with no dyes, no artificial fragrances, no synthetic ingredients, and
no harmful or toxic preservatives.
She lives by the perpetual question, “'Did God make it or did man adulterate
or synthesize it?” Then she recommends always choosing the 'God made
it' option for a healthier, happier life.
Glenna still has guilty pleasures, but they remain health conscious,
such as a gluten free, low carb strawberry shortcake with aquafaba
cream or E2 Basics Chocolate Mousse from the book The Engine
2 Diet by Rip Esselstyn.
MARLA SHUMAN | Wheaton
Joyful Holistics
Marla is a Certified Natural Therapeutic Specialist, IL Licensed Mas-
sage Therapist, Yoga Instructor, F.I.R.E. Firewalking Instructor, Reiki
Master and Teacher and believes in the philosophy of Natural Thera-
peutics, as well as Dr. Henry Lindlar words that “only God and Nature
heal and we are able to bring our body, mind and spirit into balance
through proper diet, exercise, massage and bodywork, herbal reme-
dies, and fasting, ample rest.”
She has loved nature and natural remedies since she was a kid. She
would make potions of shampoos and soaps and perfume into mixing
bottles and spray them around the house or use them like lotions. As
an adult, Marla applied this fascination at the New Mexico School of
Natural Therapeutics and now makes remedies as a Natural Thera-
peutic Specialist.
Marla shares her passion through her business, Joyful Holistics in
Wheaton. She wholly believes in living a holistic lifestyle and hasn’t
had a prescription in over 13 years. Her favorite healthy snack is
sprouted flax cracker pizza with fresh sprouts; and her guilty pleasure
is organic vegan chocolate. To de-stress, she hits the yoga mat to in-
stantly change her mindset and she is an example of health through
her hobbies, displaying happiness through painting, singing, dancing,
and meditation.

LINDSAY ROBERTSON | America: Beautifully Unique
We are all red, white and blue this month in honor of our great country. Aurora
author, Lindsay Robertson wanted to create a book geared toward children
that helped them celebrate the United States with fun facts in the form of
rhymes. As a mother of a child of Down Syndrome and the Vice President of
the organization, Save Down Syndrome, she noted that there were very few
books that featured kids who are differently abled. America: Beautifully
Unique, co-authored by Devon Goddard, showcases amazing illustrations and
features pictures of kids with Down Syndrome from each state, highlighting
not only the beauty in these kids, but the states as well. “I wanted to change
that,” says Lindsay. “I wanted to promote inclusion everywhere, including the
literary world.
There are currently two more books in the works, one involving the 7 conti-
nents and countries within them and one highlighting siblings of individuals
with Down Syndrome and their relationship. “Our main goal for these publi-
cations is to get them into schools and libraries to promote inclusion for the
special needs community,” says Lindsay.
You can purchase America: Beautifully Unique on Amazon.

WES T SUB U RB A N VIP
MEET CHRISTOPHER WEAVER
OF SUGAR GROVE
Aurora Illinois Police Department
Lip-syncing Madonna’s Express Yourself
while fully uniformed in an Aurora Illinois
Police Department squad car is one of
the many videos Officer Chris Weaver
has made to convey important mes-
sages to the west suburban commu-
nity.
His rocking imitation of Sammy Hagar
singing I Can’t Drive 55 had nearly 9,000
views on Facebook as he encouraged
drivers to slow down; reminding them to put
their cell phones down, make complete
stops, and overall do a better job of paying at-
tention while they drive.
These viral videos have gained national attention and Officer Weaver does get rec-
ognized from time to time, but his intentions are not for personal gain but rather for
the greater good.
“I am incredibly thankful that the videos connect with people,he says. It's not
about going viral or how many views-likes-shares you get, it's about the message.
I want the people of this community to know that enforcement is just one aspect of
what we do on a daily basis. I want them to feel comfortable speaking with us be-
cause we are people too. We are Husbands, Fathers, Wives, Mothers, Sons and
Daughters too.
Weaver is married with two sons and has two dogs. He graduated from West Aurora
High School in 1997 and his fondest memories from his childhood always involved
his younger brother from Little League to Summer Stage - and even causing mild
mischief.
“I was NOT the kid who grew up knowing I wanted to be a Police Officer at all,he
shares. “My father worked for the Aurora Police Department for 31 years and retired
as a Commander, but neither of my parents ever pushed any of us into one career
or another. They guided us and let us choose our own paths.”
While earning his degree in Acting at Illinois State University, Law Enforcement
struck a chord with Weaver, but not because his father had been an officer, but be-
cause he always loved helping people.
He began doing ride-a-longs with various departments and even started testing prior
to graduation. The defining moment came when he was in bed in his dorm on the
morning of September 11th, 2001.
“My mom called and told me to put on the television because a plane had struck the
World Trade Center,” he says.
Weaver made up his mind that day to be an Officer of the Law. -Kristen Kucharski

Owners: Rodrigo Cano & Julio Cano
General Manager: Emiliano Gottig
A FRESH WAY TO BRUNCH IN NAPERVILLE
Sitting atop Hotel Indigo, offering fresh views of downtown Naperville and a fresh and
exciting brunch menu, is Santo Cielo. Owners and brothers, Rodrigo Cano and Julio
Cano are known for their group of Latin restaurants, but with Santo Cielo they devel-
oped a menu with midwest roots then added global influence. On Sundays they host
a brunch like no other. With trendy décor, good vibes, affordability and breathtaking
vistasit is a favorite of many!
Our server, Marcel Perez was prompt and knowledgeable. We started with two unique
mocktails that would liven up any meal. The Maiden Voyage’s grapefruit, lemon, topo
chico and 7-herb syrup mixture was the perfect balance. The Paloma was light and
refreshing with grapefruit and lime. Both were the perfect introduction to our dining
experience.
Along with the brunch price of thirty dollars your meal includes a made to order omelet,
peruse the cold plate area along the bar or walk inside the kitchen to indulge in the
warm plate options. The variety is a nice surprise from the usual brunch faire. Cold
plate options include both quinoa and farro salads – both favorites of ours. The healthy
options went nice with yogurt parfaits topped with a gooseberry puree, fresh ripened
berries and a touch of granola. The diced fresh melon with a sprig of mint was simple,
but elegant. Among the charcuterie board and a smoked salmon board, you will find
the most succulent shrimp paired with a house made cocktail sauce and fresh oysters.
Wander into the open kitchen and enjoy a carving station of prime rib and pork belly,
scrambled eggs, rosemary potatoes, sautéed vegetables and perfectly cooked bacon.
The flavor in the chilaquiles will spice up your morning and keep you wanting more.
Muffins, donuts and bagels paired with a chive or guava cream cheese are delightful.
A variety of brick oven pizzas and avocado toast are a change from the usual brunch
array. Make sure to try the most delectable French toast both flavorful and creamy/but-
tery yet delicate. A new spin on chicken and waffles is the juicy chicken covered in
waffle batter served along side a spicy and sweet orange marmalade.
What a beautiful way to start the day this summer, whether with
friends or the whole family. Open air dining with a fresh brunch
menu and a kitchen with no boundaries!
ABOUT THE CRITICS Stephanie (right) & Tiffany (left) Schmoker are west suburban sisters
who have always shared a love for dining out and they also enjoy cooking together. They
came from a family of 7 and grew up on farm with fresh fruits, veggies and more. Watch for
their review of a different west suburban restaurant in each issue of Glancer Magazine. Invite

WE GROW DREAMS
GREENHOUSE OF
WEST CHICAGO
Ah, yesit’s summer and the sea-
son I gear up for gardening and
landscaping. I am ready to forget all
that snow and torrential rain for lush
flower beds and tasty fresh vegeta-
bles.
If you are inspired as well to start
your planting, I would urge you to
consider supporting the We Grow
Dreams Greenhouse in West
Chicago. They grow nearly 1000
variety of plants, including annuals,
perennials, vegetables, herbs, suc-
culents, and fall mums.
However, what makes We Grow
Dreams Greenhouse different is
they are one of DuPage and Kane
County’s largest employers for peo-
ple with disabilities. The program
began 15 years ago with the very
simple mission dedicated to training
and employing people with disabili-
ties and giving them an opportunity
for paid employment.
Currently, We Grow Dreams em-
ploys 30 team members. Each year
they bring in new team members
from various high schools and or-
ganizations including individuals
who are seeking employment. “We
are most proud of the fact that our
team members are being paid to
work and learn how to conduct
themselves properly in a work envi-
ronment,” says Gregg Bettcher, Ex-
ecutive Director for We Grow
Dreams Greenhouse. “Skills like
being on time, dressing properly,
how to listen to instruction, how to
complete tasks and punch in and
out are all a part of working at We
Grow Dreams. In doing this, the
foundation honors the concepts of
human dignity, respect, hard work,
fellowship and friendship.
The team members are instrumen-
tal in many facets of both production
and maintenance of the grounds
and growing houses and are in-
volved in the everyday tasks of
preparing the pots for filling and
planting. In addition to greenhouse
work, the team members also gar-
den the raised beds and grow veg-
etables for food banks throughout
the suburbs.
Our communities can help support
the We Grow Dreams Foundation
by purchasing their spring, summer
and fall plants from the Greenhouse
as well as following their Facebook
postings to keep up with donation
needs and fundraising events. Visit
them at www.wegrowdreams.org
and the greenhouse located at 1055
W. Washington in West Chicago.

Quarryjust send your 8 year old off
on the paddleboard and grab a pad-
dleboat or double kayak for you and
your littles, so you can all explore the
water together.
For those teenagers who are not so
easy to entertain for the 3 long
months of the summer, and perhaps
also remaining a bit too sedentary fix-
ated on Snapchat or Instagram, head
to Paddleboard Yoga at Batavia Park
District where you only have to be 14
years or older to participate. My girls
and their friends tend to be upside
down more than rights side up 90% of
the time and also have the flexibility
of a rubber band, so paddleboard
yoga is a perfect fit for them to have
some fun while exercising and keep-
ing cool. Naperville Park District also
offers morning Paddleboard Yoga at
Centennial Beach twice a week for
teens 16 years and older.
What I love about these water oppor-
tunities is that I am able to join them
in the fun and also happen to still be
able to do the splits, so I can provide
lots of embarrassing entertainment for
the yogi crowd!
OVERVIEW
Enjoy the calming sensa-
tion of the water while
strengthening your core,
improving your balance,
and have fun!
Naperville Kayaks offers
standup paddleboard
(SUP) rentals to kids as
young as 8 years old to
practice paddling in the Quarry
every day, all day long, all summer
long! SUP Yoga is back at the
Naperville Park District every Tues-
day and Thursday 7:45 a.m. to 8:45
a.m. for teens 16 and older; and for 14
years and older at the Batavia Park
District July 8th through 29th on Mon-
days, 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.; July 21, Sun-
day 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.; and August 4th,
Sunday, 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.

HOW CAN I CHANGE THE
LOOK OF MY HARDWOOD
FLOOR? The Buff & Coat
process makes it easy to
change from a matte to a
glossy look or vice versa. We
remove unsightly surface
scuffs and scratches and
apply a new coat of finish with a
dustless, odorless, one-day
process. Choose from matte, satin,
semi-gloss or gloss finish. For pric-
ing, request a free, in-home esti-
mate from Ray Horan at (630)
689-3800. Visit
www.buffandcoatnow.com.
