ABOUT YOUR ADVISORS IN Mid Michigan
Director of Placement
I know what it’s like to transition (and move). My Husband Matt and I relocated with our 2 children, several times (six in total, but who’s counting) as we moved cross country and back Each move brought us new friends and experiences and we look back fondly at each of those opportunities. In 2016, we jumped at an opportunity to return to Michigan, settling in Okemos. We love living in Mid-Michigan and are inspired by the communities we live and work. We’ve been fortunate to have traveled the world experiencing wonderful cultures through Europe, South Africa, and Asia.
