I moved to Traverse City in 2010 after graduating from college to pursue a career in insurance. I am currently a commercial agent at Ford Insurance Agency. A few years after having lived in the area, I decided it was time to join a service group. I joined Zonta in Spring of 2014. During my time in Zonta, I have had the chance to serve on a number of committees and have found my niche as the Chair for our Z Club at Traverse City Central High School. I have been delighted to watch our Z Club members take on service projects in the community, build their professional networks and explore career opportunities.
Not only has Zonta given me the opportunity to give back to the community and network with other businesswomen, it has allowed me to further my goals of helping guide youth. In addition to Zonta, I mentor Junior Achievement at Traverse City Central, coach Junior Varsity volleyball at Traverse City St. Francis, volunteer as an event director at the National Cherry Festival and serve as the Culinary Chair for the March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction. When I am not working or volunteering, I’m spending time with my wonderful husband, Mike, and our two dogs, Kyle (Great Dane) and Andy (Jack Russell).
