It’s rewarding to know that we are working hard for the children of Michigan to help reimagine an education system where all kids can be successful.  

What are the causes you’re most passionate about?

I am passionate about serving others. Specifically, kids of all ages, kids with special needs and kids in vulnerable situations. I find it rewarding to make a difference in a child’s life and to put a smile on their face, even for a moment. I am also passionate about working with children in the mission field.

It keeps me motivated to fight for their success and to see each child prosper in their education and in life. 

What do you love about Michigan?

I love that we are surrounded by such beautiful bodies of water and that the outdoor adventures are truly endless no matter what time of year. I love boating on the Grand Traverse bays, hiking the trails close to home, skiing Nubs Knob and snowmobiling off the grid! It truly is Pure Michigan!
