When not at work you might find Lidia and her husband Billy courtside cheering on their favorite NBA team The Bulls! (Even when the Bulls are not having a great season) Lidia also loves curling up on the couch with her two fur babies, Diesel and Layla, to binge some great TV or a Netflix marathon. As an avid reader, Lidia is also a member of a monthly book club. Lidia is always down to try a new restaurant or local “hot spot” with family or friends.
