Sylvia’s professional background is in the medical field. She owned and operated a physical therapy office in Zurich, Switzerland before moving to the United States, following her husband Thomas, who had accepted an international transfer by his company. Since this move in 1998 she has had the opportunity not only to work at her son’s elementary school, to manage a small restaurant and to be involved in a large family farm operation, but also to follow her dream to own an KOA campground. Since 2012 she and her husband have been the proud owners of the award winning Chicago Northwest KOA! Sylvia has a passion for customer service and is dedicated to make the park a place, where her guests can recharge, relax and create memories.
KOA Care Camps is a wonderful charity that supports families with a child diagnosed with cancer. She is honored to serve on it’s board to help bring more cancer afflicted youths to camp, where they have fun and are safe and untroubled for a few days.
Sylvia and her husband have two adult sons. She loves the outdoors, yoga, reading, gardening, skiing and much more!
