I live in Macomb, MI, which is a suburb of Detroit.

How long have you been a Fellow Flower?

It has been about 2 years.

Where/how did you find out about Fellow Flowers?

Since I started doing Triathlons in 2012, I  have always set 3 goals for each race. I called (and still do) the biggest goal my ROCKSTAR goal. At the 2014 Detroit Goddess Expo, I saw the Rockstar Statement Tee from across the room – I had to have it. I reached my Rockstar Goal at that Race and proudly wore that shirt every chance I got. I did not buy a flower that day, but the seed was planted.

Soon after that, Erica Hill did a story on Fellow Flowers in conjunction with a race she was racing in. I cried watching that story. I was on vacation with my family, but I called my best friend immediately after that story and we jumped online and ordered our first flowers. Mine was green for courage.
