I was born and raised in Rochester Hills, MI. I slowly made my way north and ended up in beautiful Traverse City. I’ve been here 12 years and I can’t imagine living anywhere else.
Prior to joining Blueprint Partners, I worked at the American Red Cross for 11 years in disaster relief services. I have been deployed locally and nationally to manage numerous disasters including Hurricane Katrina. I understand the importance of having a plan in place for you, your family and your business in case of an emergency. My experience managing disasters and dozens of volunteers gives me a deep understanding of the need for a process and to pay attention to the details. This unique set of skills helps me be an efficient Practice Manager for Blueprint.
I have a passion for non-profit volunteer work and was a volunteer manager for the Traverse City Film Festival and the Traverse City Comedy Festival for 9 years. Due to my attention to detail and ability to multi-task I was given the privilege to manage the flagship venue for the Traverse City Film Festival for 2 of the 9 years. I also volunteer with Single MOMM as a lead for event nights in the 3-4 yr. old classroom. I love having the opportunity to serve the single mom’s in our community by spending time with their children while they enjoy a couple hours of food and fellowship.
I enjoy taking advantage of everything northern MI has to offer with my family and friends. I like outdoor activities, especially stand up paddle boarding and anything that involves my dog Henry and the beach.
