I grew up right here in the beautiful Upper Peninsula. Now my husband and I are raising our family in this community that we love. I enjoy the outdoors and kayaking. There is an incredible sense of freedon and tranquility that comes from paddling on the Keweenaw's serene waters and feeling the sun on my face. When I am not on the water I enjoy reading and writting. My life is a careful balance of family, nature, literature, and community. I strive to make the world a little brighter for those around me.
