Macey Hallstedt, Site Specialist

I grew up in west Michigan and had a picture-perfect childhood. Literally, the movie American Pie is based on my hometown. It’s a great place to be from, but I have always known I wanted to travel.

During and between these gigs, I visited Costa Rica, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Iceland, Spain, Italy, Greece, Morocco, and Portugal. Included on my travel to-do list: the rest of the world.
