The Queen Bee

Okay, well I wouldn’t say queen per se, but here’s a little bit more about who I am…

I am the daughter, granddaughter, niece, cousin, and sister to a family of thespians and artists…so creativity runs in our blood.  I was born and raised in various suburbs of Chicago and I absolutely love it here!  I have been surrounded by books for as long as I can remember and often dream about opening my own bookstore.

I graduated summa cum laude from Northern Michigan University in 2007 with a B.S. in English Literature.  I also double minored in public relations and Native American studies.  While I was in college, I worked for various publications, including the alumni magazine (Northern Horizons) and the local Native American newspaper, Anishinabe News, specializing in Native American arts and entertainment.  Outside of school, I served as the editor and writer for the Lakes Community High School fine arts newsletter, In Tempo, for three years.

Outside of work-related shenanigans, I spend my time watching LOST, browsing old creaky bookstores, and drinking coffee.  My CD rack is full of Frank Sinatra albums and I’ve read roughly five biographies on him.  I will willingly admit that I’ve read the entire Harry Potter series four times and I’m not looking to stop anytime soon.  If I could afford it, I’d go to the theater every weekend and I have a secret desire to play Mary Poppins on Broadway (I can spell supercalifragilisticexpialidocious if that helps!).

  5. I grew up in the UP and traditional pasties were not made with ground beef or carrots. Beef and pork small chunks. Layer potato, rutabega, beef and pork with slivered onions on top. Add 2 teaspoons if water and salt and pepper. Fold over crust then crimp closed. Poke with a fork for steam to release. Definately no peas!
