Personal Background

I have lived in this beautiful waterfront community of St. Ignace my entire life. My husband and I have two children. A son living in Florida and a daughter living just a mile down the road. We also have two very active grandchildren, resulting in our attending many hockey and basketball games. 

Just recently we sold our boat after spending many wonderful years cruising on the Great Lakes & North Channel in Canada. At one point, along with 2 other boats we cruised from St. Ignace to Lake Erie to access the Erie Canal which we followed to Oswego, New York crossing Lake Ontario then following the Trent-Severn Waterway and arriving back in the North Channel after having locked through over 100 locking systems. This was a wonderful expierence for all involved in this 3 week trip. 




Personal Interests

We enjoy boating, having taken many trips across Lake Huron, Michigan, Erie and Ontario as well as the North Channel, the Erie Canal and Trent Severn Waterways. We are also members of the St. Ignace Yacht Club and very active in our tight knit community.
