Why did you choose to work and live in the Ann Arbor area?

I came to Ann Arbor for grad school and decided to stick around after graduating. I've lived in places bigger and smaller than A2 and have found this is a good fit for me.

What do you like the least about your work?

I spend a lot of time on the phone. And, since I'm often working from a coffee shop, I spend a lot of time and energy trying to mask the wide variety of background noises one finds there...

What do you like the most about your work?

It might sound cheesy, but I really believe in the work I do with veterans and their families. I'm inspired and interested by what I do every day. And - more selfishly - I work from home/coffee shops/wherever the day takes me. I have the flexibility to travel and make my own schedule. I don't know how I'll ever go back to an office environment - hoping I never have to!

What type of company / business do you work for?

I work for a national non-profit (Volunteers of America).

What type of work do you do?

I work to expand programs for veterans and their families in communities across the country.


I'm a southern transplant (originally from Louisiana) now living and working in Ann Arbor after finishing grad school at U of M. I work remotely (and thus have no onsite coworkers), so I'm hoping to meet some other young professionals in the area!
