Angie is native to the area and is proud to claim herself as being on the original Battle of the Books team way back when. She was excited when the National Writers Series revived the program, especially now that she is part of the NWS team. She graduated from Traverse City Central before going to Ferris State University for Business Administration. 

Angie loves reading and sharing books so much she began a “flashlight” rating scale that signifies how late into the night someone would stay up reading a particular book and shares that scale with her friends on social media. She always appreciates a good book recommendation.

Angie spends a lot of her spare time with her husband and two children doing family activities such as hiking, traveling, attending community events, and exploring the local area.
