Jennifer Bowman - The Awesome Mitten
: Metro Detroit

Hey, there! I’m Jennifer, a southwest Virginia native trying my hand at the Michigan life. In 2011, I moved to the mitten after a whirlwind year of getting married and following my then-new husband to metro Detroit for his new job. Since then, I’ve been busy exploring the great lakes state and all of the unique qualities it has to offer. I’m kind of a newbie when it comes to knowing the ins and outs of Michigan, but I’m learning quickly (and having a blast along the way). While I spend my free time navigating new-to-me places, I’m a marketer and online community manager throughout the week. If you’d like to learn more about my adventures in Michiganland, you can visit my personal blog, Wading in Big Shoes. In the meantime, I’ll see you around the mitten!
