Why did you choose to be part of the Parenting Program?

My babies, barre, working out, running, exploring new cities, and traveling

Charlevoix or Traverse City

My favorite movie is “Good Will Hunting” and my favorite book is “The World According to Garp.”

What’s your favorite meal?

Anything from Luxe in Birmingham, Mexican topopo salad, or white sheet cake with mounds of frosting

What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Oreo, mint chocolate chip or cookie dough with lots of sprinkles. With ice cream, I really don’t discriminate.  😀

Share something about you that might surprise us.

I played collegiate volleyball and have run several marathons.
