Susan Collins Thoms is a proud Michigander, born and raised in the Great Lakes State. She loves Michigan’s colorful fall days, its snowy winters, and its sudden springs. But most of all, she loves spending long summer days hiking along beaches and sand dunes and watching the sun set late in the evening over Lake Michigan. Susan and her husband, Bill, (a Yooper at heart), live in Grand Rapids and have three children and two grandchildren. Visit Susan online at susancollinsthoms.com.
