Originally from Livonia, Michigan, Kristin and her husband, Scott, have lived in Grand Haven for more than 25 years. They have two adult children who also reside in West Michigan. Kristin is passionate about the West Michigan Lakeshore because of its beaches and parks, and most of all because the people are kind and sincere—there is a true sense of community. Kristin enjoys spending time outdoors, gardening, hiking, skiing, biking, and kayaking. It’s no surprise, Grand Haven is the perfect place to call home.
