Where did you grow up?

What makes you passionate about what you do?
I love working with a variety of businesses. That's what drives me - learning the intricacies of each type of business and how to engage their target consumer. That and I LOVE sports. And, FOX has the best of sports!

What is your philosophy on the work that you do?
The harder you work - the luckier you get. Do your part and God takes care of the rest.

What do you love about living here?
It's my hometown. I know the history here. My family all lives here. Without the family and friendships - it's just a place. But with it - it's truly HOME. It's just cold enough to keep away the dangerous creepie crawlies. And warm enough to be phenomenal in the summer. We have great culture with MSU (Sports, Broadway Musicals, concerts), local fairs and festivals and we are less than 2 hours from Lake Michigan, 3 1/2 hours from Cedar Point and 4 hours from the U.P. My favorite trout fishing waters are only 3 1/2 hours away and I can hunt out my back door if I wish. And, major professional sports are an hour and a half away. Go Lions and Tigers!
