Judi Schindler

Author “Husbands: An Owner’s Manual

Friend, Fellow Chicagoan and NAWBO member, Judi Schindler, is an actor, voice-over artist, author and speaker. She began entertaining audiences with her witty, candid advice on men and marriage in 2012. The program, based on 50 plus years of marriage, explains how to select a husband and how to maintain him in good working order. Topics include replacement parts, warranties and exchanges.

Five years later, she has written a book of the same title. She is also the author of the weekly blog, “The Toilet Seat Must Go Down,” where she shares observations about dating and mating.

Schindler began her career as a public relations and marketing consultant, heading a 10- person firm for more than 40 years. In 2008, she took up a second occupation as an actor, performing in local theaters, commercials and films and recording voice-overs for a variety of organizations. Most recently, she was featured in the highly acclaimed play “Admissions,” by Joshua Harmon at Theater Wit in Chicago.

Still active in the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), she is a founder and past president of the Chicago Chapter as well as a former national officer. Her work in this area earned her the 1989 Chicago “Woman Business Owner of the Year” award and the 1986 national award as “Women in Business Advocate” presented by the United States Small Business Administration.

Happily married to Jack Schindler, a retired insurance executive, they have one son and six grandchildren, all of whom live in Kankakee, Ill.

We certainly need laughter in our lives as an antidote to this period we are living through. I recommend this book to give you a moment of joy.
