I cannot believe that it has been almost 19 years since my husband and I made the wonderful decision to relocate from the Detroit area to Traverse City. The move was prompted by a job opportunity for my husband and it was definitely a leap of faith as we left the close support of family and knew only one couple who lived in the area. We found that the Grand Traverse Region is a wonderful place to raise a family. Our four children have thrived in the schools and benefitted from the many extracurricular activities available. For fun, we love to spend time outdoors during all four seasons, and we love to eat good food whether it is from our favorite restaurants or cooking with bountiful locally sourced products.
Being an active member of the community has always been a priority for me. I have had the privilege of serving on various boards and committees as well as actively volunteering through different local organizations.
There has definitely been an increase in diversity in Traverse City over the years we have been here and I am excited to be a steward of even more to come!
