Meet Board & Brush St. Charles Owners

Katie & Mike Ilic

After graduating from the University of Illinois, Katie started her career as high school math teacher at Neuqua Valley in Naperville where she also coached the sophomore volleyball team. Eight years later, she left the classroom behind to stay at home with her daughter when she was born. She traded in calculators and lecturing for diapers and sleepless nights! 

Mike attended NIU and will always be a Husky at heart. He was a Senior Manager at Accenture for 18 years before leaving that behind to become a Board & Brush studio owner. He loves Chicago sports, especially the Cubs, Bears, and the Bulls. He is 100% Croatian and was so excited to see the Croatian National soccer team do so well in the 2018 World Cup. 

Mike and Katie attended a workshop for their anniversary in 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed their experience. They were immediately hooked and knew that a business like Board & Brush would be perfect for their family. Katie's passion is teaching and Mike is a DIY junkie. Owning and operating a Board & Brush studio is not only an exciting new adventure, but it also gives them the flexibility to spend more time together as a family. It hardly feels like working when you love what you do every day! 

Jessica James

Jessic is the studio manager for the St. Charles studio. Jessica has been working for Mike and Katie Ilic since they first opened  Board and Brush Oswego, and is super excited for the opportunity to bring this amazing business to St. Charles! Jessica is a DIY junkie, and was hooked as soon as she attended her first workshop.  Jessica is a Chicago native, married to her best friend Matt, raising their four children in Oswego
