Although born and raised in Green Bay WI (Go Pack Go!)) Teri and her husband Rob with their two kids, Benmont and Campbell now call the Keweenaw Peninsula home. The move north was a dream come true to build their business Northwinds Adventures in Atlantic Mine. When Teri is not greeting our patients with a welcoming smile she is helping make smooth transitions for their guests at their camp and keeping up with her quickly growing little people.
Teri and her family spend as much time on the shores of Lake Superior and the other natural wonders of the UP. Personal joys in her life are running the hills of Houghton, hiking through the woods and digging into a good book. As long as she has her family, wide open spaces and sunshine....she is a happy camper!
Steffi, as we call her, is a born and bred Yooper with a bubbly personality and big bright smile! Her primary job is being a busy stay-at-home mom to her bouncing toddler with adorable dimples, Henry. On Mondays she joins us in the office to add to our team and get some much needed adult interaction so don’t be afraid to strike-up a conversation!
Steffi enjoys exploring nature and everything water… waterfalls, lakes, and rivers. When she’s not exploring her surrounding you can find her nose in a book, but these days it’s mostly children’s books with the hopes to pass on the love of reading to her son. She also spends much of her time on the family farm in Mass City; She loves being, there playing with the animals, and living the “country life”. She says nothing is more perfect than ending her day with her family around the bonfire.
