What is your most memorable Iris moment?

Honestly, every time the Iris crew gets together it is memorable. I really
enjoyed seeing our Grand Traverse County 2017 Earth Day event come together. It was my first big event as an official Iris member and I can’t wait to work on many more with these Iris ladies!

My Favorite Game Is...

Oh, come on, I have to pick one? I can’t do it! I can narrow it down to three. Monopoly Deal, Catan, and hide-and-seek with my puppy!

My secret super power is...

Withstanding the super cuteness of my 90-pound lap dog. Just kidding, I totally give in to him and spoil him rotten!

Something on my bucket list...

So many things but I’d have to say traveling is included in all of them! Going to Alaska and Japan are very high on that list. Visiting all the National Parks! Ireland, Galápagos Islands, hiking the Appalachian Trail, seeing an ocean. Yeah, let’s just say traveling!

One environmental issue that I am passionate about is...

Reducing the use of single-use plastics, especially plastic bags, water bottles and straws. Plastic pollution is terrorizing our bodies of water and everything that depends on them.
