“I didn’t realize as a kid that I could be paid to be social and organized. I went to college as a vocal music major, but found that I could plan events for a living. I had been planning them my whole life, but never connected it to an industry. Since then, I don’t feel like I’ve worked a day in my life. I love what I do. I love going to work everyday. I love sharing how much I love what I do with my kids to inspire them to do what they love doing. I feel blessed to do what I do in this state and more importantly, Traverse City. I try to give as much time as I can giving back to Traverse City.”
