Hey there, awesome Awesome Mitten readers! I’m a born and raised-Metro Detroiter and born die-hard Spartan. I graduated from Michigan State with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 2010; I’m so lucky to have made so many lifelong friends in East Lansing (including Awesome Mitten creator Alex Beaton, my former roommate) and gotten an outstanding education from the greatest school in the nation.
Aside from the Spartans, one of my favorite things about Michigan is the extraordinary diversity; travel a short thirty minutes in one direction, and you can see a show at the Fox Theater, watch a game at Comerica Park, get a delicious meal in Greek Town, and visit a thousand other Detroit landmarks. A short drive in another direction and you’re greeted by some of the most beautiful waterfront in the country.
Outside of being a Michigan-devotee, I love movies, game nights, and spending time with family and friends. I also love to travel, but, of course, one of the best parts of going on a great, adventurous vacation is coming back to this beautiful place we call home!
