Diane Hansell has been part of Northern Michigan for most of her life. “I have lived many places in the US and there is no place that makes me feel like home more than being Up North. I have so many great friends here because everyone is so friendly. I enjoy getting out and walking, boating and camping in all the beautiful places nearby. I’m a huge animal advocate and have been a board member for the Little Traverse Bay Humane Society and currently work with a non-profit that is fighting against puppy mills. I have two dogs and share their crazy stories on my weekly dog blog. I also love cooking, gardening and small get togethers with friends. So let’s spend the workday together and share some fun.
