Secretary & Fundraising

She also writes about health and wellness, business, relationships, & travel for a variety of websites and magazines, including Parents, Ernst & Young's Reporting magazine, West Michigan Woman, Teach & Travel, Groups Today, and more.
When she’s not writing, Kirsetin and her husband enjoy spending time with their three boys, one of whom is still young enough to live at home. Kirsetin is enthusiastic about yoga, coaching basketball, weight training, craft beer, watching football, laughing with friends, and traveling as often as life allows.
