Greg Ayotte

I was born in the town of Waukegan, IL and I grew up in a middle/working class family in Zion, IL. I graduated from Zion Benton High School in 1987. I graduated from U of I Urbana/Champaign with a BS in Finance in 1991. I worked in banking for 9 years after college and moved on to retail where I am currently working for Walmart. I enjoy technology, collecting coins, listening to many different genres of music and also watching movies. I try to stay positive and have a strong belief that though life can be tough and throw you some curve balls, it is never to late to become the person you always have wanted to be.
