What do you love about Traverse City?
The beauty that surrounds us, the water, and clean fresh air. I love to ride my bike or walk downtown and explore different things that I do not see when I am driving. I love how I know people everywhere and feel safe and connected to the community. I can’t believe I am saying this because I am a summer girl, but I do enjoy the change of seasons. There are just so many things it is impossible to list all of them.
Your proudest achievement?
Raising my son to be a thoughtful, kind human.
What do you most value in your life?
My family and friends.
When and where are you the happiest?
In nature: the water, the beach, the mountains, and a view of the open sky.
How do you define health?
Part of being healthy is being happy and taking care of yourself. To be healthy you have to find balance. I feel healthiest when I have a balance of work and play, and giving and receiving in my life.
