As a Contributing Writer for Detroit Mom, I am happy to have found a community of women where I can share both the joys and challenges of parenting. I love exploring all the unique places and events in the metro Detroit area as well as traveling within the U.S and abroad. My husband and I are high school sweethearts and have been together for 20 years. We have an energetic and curious five year old daughter, Marlo. We have called Brighton home for the past decade.
