Hi! I'm Dawn, and I'm so excited to be filling in for Kristen while she's home with her sweet baby! I was born in Chicago, grew up in southwest Michigan and never left the Lansing area after attending Michigan State University. I love all that mid-Michigan has to offer—amazing locally owned restaurants and shops, great trails for walking/running/biking, fun events and wonderful people! I'm a recent "empty nester" who loves music, concerts, books, walks and talks with friends, board games, vegan/vegetarian food, road trips and the great outdoors. I look forward to spending time with you each morning!
