Lifelong cheerleader, married to the football coach. Mother of two humans and two fur babies. Detroit-based but I prefer to be on the water or somewhere warm.
My travel style
I love to stay at places that are unique and have character. I prefer the sun and the beach whenever possible, and dining at local restaurants. I thrive in the outdoors and look for excursions that are on or near water – oceans, waterfalls, you name it. On my travels, I am always sure to schedule some downtime to relax and adventure to places that not everyone visits.

A comfy and stylish stay in the buzzing Warehouse District.

One thing I can't travel without...
A good book.
Two truths, one lie:
I’ve dived in the Great Barrier Reef.
I made the front page of the local news twice while on vacation, one of which was when I was in Cancun.
I won a trip to LA to see a screening of Twilight and met the cast.
