New neighbors Paris and Kanisha Galmore, along with 11-year-old Cameron and 10-month-old McKenzie, decided to make Beverly/Morgan Park their new home in Aug. 2019. Previously, the family lived in Oakbrook, but decided to move after Paris’ sister and her husband moved to Beverly/Morgan Park.
“After coming to visit my sister a few times and taking several hour-long walks, we were convinced that Beverly was the community for us to purchase a home,” Paris said. “The thing we enjoy most is seeing families enjoy outdoor activities and the beauty of all the hills in Beverly.”
Paris, a Northern Illinois University graduate with a B.S. in Industrial Engineering Technology, has worked in the occupational safety industry for the last 15 years in various industries like manufacturing, transportation, and healthcare. Kanisha, a Northern Illinois University graduate with a B.A. in Journalism, has made a career at the Cook County Circuit Court.
For fun, Paris loves cars and golf, while Kanisha craves a good cup of tea and expresses her creativity through her interior design hobby. Cameron attends Sutherland Elementary School and enjoys the activities at Ridge Park, while baby McKenzie loves the long walks the family takes.
As recent BAPA members, the Galmores are excited to one day get back out to BAPA-sponsored events and further explore their new neighborhood. “We really enjoy Ridge Park and Cameron enjoys the activities there. My favorite thing has been the Italian beef at Janson’s – simply amazing!” Paris said.
