The Accomplishments
Of Today's
Married Women®

Mrs. Illinois International®

Jennifer Naida

1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
Being a long-term survivor of Vasculitis, a rare autoimmune disease, has been a blessing. Enduring 2 years of Chemotherapy and 28 surgeries has taught me to face challenges head-on, appreciate that which makes us all unique, and prepared me well for the role of advocate for others.

2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
I have saved the lives of 2 choking victims using the Heimlich Maneuver. These two experiences, 5 years apart, revealed to me the power and importance of helping a stranger.

3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
I love my heart-healthy walking for cardio exercise and weight training and yoga for strong muscles and bones. My husband and I are committed to our well balanced diet and healthy choices for mind and body.

4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
Family values are the blueprints to our behavior and how we treat those we love. They are traditional in essence, unique to every family, and transcend the generations. Family values provide us with our history and our future alike.

5.If you had no fear, what would you try?
I am over-organized. Our house is so organized that sometimes we cant find what we are looking for.
