Born and raised in Michigan, she spends as much time as possible, on the golden sands lining the lake and playing in the waves. Her writing has appeared in Women's Adventure Magazine, at Beliefnet.com, Relevant Magazine, and Radiant Magazine. One of her essays recently received a SOLAS Award for travel writing from Travelers' Tales. Her writing can also be found on her blog, Bella Verita.

Welcome to Ungrind

As you read, we hope you consider us friends, the kind you feel comfortable sitting across the table with at the local coffee shop. You can read more about me HERE and our team of writers HERE.
