Jacki Halas is a Communications Specialist at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. Writing is her first love but she also enjoys living a green lifestyle, running and spending time outdoors.
I love Michigan’s great outdoors: Great Lakes, Great Times. I especially love wake boarding on Michigan’s freshwater lakes, watching the Spartans play football, snowboarding up North or planting flowers in the Spring. I’ve learned to love all facets of Michigan’s seasonal weather. I’m also a big fan of Detroit sports and the city’s music scene.
