Hi, My name is

Abby Clear

Hello and welcome to Lakes and Grapes, a place for me to share my passions in life. I started this blog as an outlet to capture all things lakes, grapes, travel, and Northern Michigan living. I am fortunate enough to call Traverse City my home, a Northern Michigan town that is blessed with miles of Lake Michigan coastline, surrounded by a countryside full of vineyards and orchards.

I currently work in the wine industry, while freelancing in digital marketing. As a 2014 college graduate from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Communications & Sports Management, most of my professional career has been spent working in the sports media industry.  It wasn’t until recently that I decided to give up my career in sports, to follow my dreams down another career path.  I could not be more excited to see what the future holds as I embark on this new journey!

Thanks for stopping by Lakes and Grapes!

Feel free to email me with any questions or comments— I’d love to hear from you.
