Speaker: Gretchen Humphries, an IT MATTERS TO ME PROJECT Leader

 
 

About Gretchen

I live in a small village northwest of Ann Arbor with my partner of 25 years, Brad, and our four amazing children. My kitchen is my sacred space and my gardens are a close second. I could be described as a "crazy cat vet" and have worked in the veterinary medicine field for 23 years. I try to be a blogger. For 5 years, I've been a grateful member of the recovery community, and I attend Blue Ocean Faith, a church that believes "we need connection more than we need answers."

 

Favorite Things:  I cook, bake, can for fun, and dabble in various forms of home fermentation, including wild sourdough and skyr (Icelandic yogurt).
