Outside of the Office
When Dr. Fear is not in the office she enjoys spending time with her family, especially her rescue dog, Gunnar. She loves going to athletic events and is an avid fan of all Wolverine and Detroit sports teams. Not only a spectator, she is also on a mission to complete a half-marathon in all 50 states. Though she will miss her time in Texas, Dr. Fear loves being back in Michigan where she is once again able to enjoy the beauty of the seasons; from the Great Lakes beaches in the summer, to Michigan Football Saturdays in the fall, and reacclimating to the cold snowy winters.
