New TCYP Blogger - Mo Stych

Greetings! Welcome to the Traverse City Young Professionals blog, which John Stocki (also an awesome name) and I recently inherited from Meaghan. Our goal is not to blab about ourselves but to bring to you a wide scope of the Traverse City area from the perspectives of many different people exploring, dining, creating, hiking, swimming, biking, networking, playing, living and growing in this place we all call home. John and I are happy to host these viewpoints and compile them here for the world to see and ogle over. Expect lots of great things moving forward! 

But, just to give you a sense of who I am, I'm going to take a moment to blab about myself. I promise this is the only time!

I was raised but not born in TC. My family moved up here from Hyde Park, IL when I was 3, and I've hardly left since then. I made my first friends, first sandcastles, and first face-plant downhill skiing in this area. I graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in History of Art and moved back home to start a life of my own in the town I grew up in, which is not as easy as it sounds.

Still, I was lucky to find a boy (who I'm marrying in September of this year) that is also from TC and wanted to start a life here, too, so together we are navigating these grounds and building our own world in the town we think we know. Turns out this small town keeps getting bigger, and that's not a bad thing at all.

I work in Marketing | Communications at Northwestern Bank and love experimenting with visual design, namely typography. You'll find me outdoors every spare second I have--when I'm not lost in a good book, making up recipes in my much-too-tiny kitchen, traveling around when I can afford it, or thinking of the next goal I want to accomplish.

I am a proud vegetarian and tree-hugger. I dream of the day I can have my own yard with chickens, ducks, and dogs running around in it, and I work hard to make that dream a reality. I also LOVE giraffes.

Enough about me...let's talk about you!

Hopefully you were drawn here because you're interested in the TCYP. Well, you're in luck, because we are always looking for people like you (and if you're in the TCYP already, then you know we like people like you). If you want to  learn about job opportunities in the area, make new friends and expand your business networking reach while having a great time, then you've found the right community.

For more information about the TCYPs, come to our monthly meetings (the third Thursday of every month, 8 a.m. at the TC Chamber building downtown) or visit our website and Facebook page. The video, below, also explains what the TCYP lifestyle is all about.

We would love for you to be apart of it.

- Mo
