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!

I’m Jennifer, a native Virginian trying her hand at living the Michigan life. I moved to the mitten with my husband in 2011, and since then, have been busy exploring the state and looking for the best of what it has to offer. So far, I have no complaints—except maybe that whole “longer winter” thing. But, hey—even that just gives me an excuse to buy more sweaters. When I’m not searching for new places or immersing myself in media news (I’m an advertising junkie), I’m usually writing stories for my blog, Wading in Big Shoes. I love connecting with new people, so feel free to find me there or at my Twitter handle, @JHBowman. In the meantime, I’ll see you around the mitten!
