Content Market Project Manager

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE BLOG AND WHY?

I don’t routinely read many blogs, but I love to read newspapers and magazines. The New York Times and National Geographic are personal favorites.

WHAT MAKES TRAVERSE CITY APPEALING?

The people. Sure, I love the restaurants and breweries, the shopping and trails. I even love the snow! But what really sets our little city apart is our community. We’re so fortunate to live in a community of diverse, inclusive, civically engaged, environmentally conscious and forward-thinking people.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT AT WORK?

If I’m not at work, you can probably find me tending my garden or strolling through our baby orchard, reading a book on my porch with my favorite fluffy cat, Banjo, attacking one of the 30+ home improvement projects I’ve started (and neglected to finish) or sharing a pint with friends and family.

YEARS FROM NOW, WHAT WILL STICK OUT MOST ABOUT 2017?

For me (and I suspect many people reading this post) 2017 has been a year of change. From moving into my first home and adopting my cat (his name is Banjo and he’s fantastic) to beginning my position at Oneupweb, I’ve grown a lot in the past 10 months. It’s been exciting and a little scary to take big leaps, but I couldn’t be happier with where I’ve landed.

IT’S 5:30 PM – WHAT’S YOUR COCKTAIL OF CHOICE?

I like to switch up what I drink and try new beverages each season. I’m a huge fan of The Little Fleet’s seasonal cocktail lineup. That being said, I don’t think you can go wrong with a hoppy brew, a dry chardonnay, a crisp hard cider, or a stiff Old Fashioned.

WHAT’S THE LAST SONG YOU INTENTIONALLY LISTENED TO?

“Multi-Love” Unknown Mortal Orchestra

WHAT DO YOU CARRY IN YOUR PURSE?

The contents of my purse are, for the most part, pretty unremarkable. Right now, my purse contains my wallet, car keys, Burt’s Bees lip balm, a small flashlight, a bag of Cheez-It’s and King of Beaver Island by Roger Van Noord.

WHAT’S YOUR SECRET GUILTY PLEASURE?

I love to put my pajamas on the minute I walk in the door from work.

FAVORITE BOOK/MOVIE/ALBUM/TV SHOW/ETC…?

Movie: Moonrise Kingdom

Album: Rumors, Fleetwood Mac

TV Show: Parks and Recreation

DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN 3 TO 5 WORDS.

Determined. Inquisitive. Charcuterie enthusiast.

WHAT WOULD YOU NOT BE CAUGHT DEAD WEARING?

Finally, an easy question! You’ll never catch me in maize and blue. Go Green!

WHAT’S ONE OF LIFE’S SIMPLE PLEASURES?

Biting into a warm, sun-ripened tomato straight from the vine.
