This month, Standard For Success features Fay Nickel, SFS Client Engagement Specialist
“I grew up in northern Michigan (yes, the same northern Michigan made famous by Kid Rock). Even though I’m pretty sure Kid Rock had more fun down by the lake
than I did, I am still proud to call Michigan my home and have many wonderful memories of my childhood here. I enjoy softball in the summer and skiing in the winter.”.
