Janna

I grew up in South Haven, Michigan. Gotta love the Lake Michigan shore. I still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily. I moved to Grand Rapids to go to Calvin College, fell in love with GR and have been here ever since! (Go Beer City, USA!)

I’m a big fan of crime TV, the ’90s (scrunchies! “Saved By the Bell!”), my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really, really love it, OK?), reading, people watching, drinking on patios, playing the most inappropriate cards in Cards Against Humanity, and my dear, dear family.
