I grew up, as my parents and grandparents did, in Clawson, MI. and actually purchased my first home there as well, in 1990.
While attending Clawson High School, I was very active in all activities that were available for the student/athletes: Sports - JV and Varsity Basketball, JV and Varsity Volleyball, Varsity Softball, Drill Team, Synchronized Swimming, Student Senate and National Honor Society.
I am the 2nd of six children who were all raised to be honest and hard working - to be the best person you could be, at all times.
I attended both Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, MI and Oakland University in Rochester Hills, MI.
After attending college, I moved back to Clawson -- coached the Dance/Drill Team at Clawson High School and Synchronized Swimming at Troy High School.
I then married and had two children - who both now attend Clarkston High School.
I've built two houses, and renovated two others as well - my children know nothing else, but living in a construction zone.
I am a sports enthusiast who loves to watch my children with their sports -- Cheer leading, Travel Hockey and Travel Baseball, and playing golf myself. Watching their growth athletically, socially and academically is truly amazing.
