From the author…
Born and Raised: In a suburb of Detroit, Michigan, I grew up with red shag carpet, The Smurfs and Cabbage Patch Dolls. In my past time, I played flashlight tag with the neighborhood kids and listened to NKOTB aka The New Kids on The Block.

Family: I am lucky to have a large family. I have an older sister, Angela, who also ate spaghetti in a hot dog bun (among other crazy concoctions my mom created for us) growing up. I am married to the coolest guy ever and together, we are raising our baby girl Ruby.

Education: There’s a ton of rivalry between Michigan and Michigan State (are you a maize and blue or green and white fan?) I have to admit, I started going to U of M then happily switched over to Michigan State. I went to college for six years, earning my undergraduate and graduate degrees in education, curriculum and research.
