Digital Media Director
As Digital Media Director with Bound Media Group, my desire is to help develop effective digital strategies for our advertising partners across all our publications. Whether it is a custom print publication or advertising in one of our many properties such as The Waterways Journal, Harbor House or High Plains Journal, I am here to help you navigate the digital landscape.
I also have my own film company and enjoy teaching at Wichita State University and Southwestern College such as film production, storytelling, editing, computer science, web development, business strategies and marketing.

I have layers of things I love about life. When not editing, writing or creating messaging, I'm with my family and hiking the trails. I live within an easy commute of the North Country Trail and more local trails than most know exist. Adventure on!
I'm inclined to be outside as much as possible, enjoying human-powered adventure; especially hiking, cross-country skiing, camping, and kayaking. I live in Boyne City with my wife, Christie, and dog, Ruby.
I love being outside all year long, but there's nothing like romping around in the snow in my own backyard. It's my happy place.
Senior Account Manager
My family enjoying beautiful Northern Michigan where we have lived for over 30 years and love everything it has to offer. We ski, bike, kayak, paddleboard, hike, boat and play in the outdoors every chance we get.
I live in Traverse City, Michigan with my husband, two golden retrievers and two cats. I enjoy golfing, bowling — most anything outdoors in the beautiful area in which I live. I also love to cook and entertain friends and family and I organize an annual golf outing which supports our local humane society each summer.
I enjoy exploring all of Michigan's beautiful lakes, rivers and trails. When not exploring, I can be found working in my flower gardens.

Vacation mode in the U.P. at our place that my late husband built. Spending quality time during the annual fishing derby with my kids and older brother and sister-in-law. Family is Everything!
