I live in northern Michigan and am an autism consultant for 3 counties -- Cheboygan, Otsego, and Presque Isle. I work with students who have autism spectrum disorder and with their teachers, aides, and parents as well. I am a very active person and some of my interests include hiking, biking, kayaking, skiing, camping, and traveling. I also very much enjoy live performance, especially music. Seeing new places and trying new things is my passion! I took some of my family to Ireland in 2012; we stayed in an Airbnb place and had a ball -- it was a fabulous experience!
