- Working closely with President & Executive Director to execute the Launch MI mission
What’s the best part of your job?
The best part of my job is knowing that I can help make a difference in the lives of our children and we’re working hard at creating a student-centered education system in Michigan. It’s an honor and a privilege to sit around the table of some great minds that are working tirelessly to accomplish the Launch Michigan mission!
Favorite flavor of ice cream?
What music are you streaming?
I’m a lover of (almost) all music. I love anything from Michael Bublé to the Dixie Chicks to Fleetwood Mac. It completely depends on the day.
Why do you love where you live?
I recently just moved to Clarkston from Lansing and I love that it’s a smaller town with character, good food, and fun activities to keep me busy all year long!
If you could choose a super power, what would it be?
Favorite book from childhood?
My favorite children’s author is Roald Dahl, but my favorite of his books is probably "The BFG."
To choose only one…probably "Pride and Prejudice."
An extended tour visiting France, Switzerland, and Italy.
I enjoy anything outdoors or on the water, and especially traveling to Northern Michigan. I also like to read, run, and learn new recipes.
