other Interests

Volleyball
I played for Ferris State from 2008 to 2012. I had the honor of walking away with a Conference Championship ring, and All-American and Academic All-American accolades (Go Bulldogs!). Now I dabble in various rec leagues. 

Biking
Road and mountain. Love them both, and biking is easy on the knees. 

 

House Renovations
What better way to learn how it all works. 

Plant Mom
There's no such thing as too many plants.

Traveling
My goal is to visit every continent.
