Ingrid Ault, local to the core

I am local to the core. I was born in Ann Arbor, attended public schools here, and graduated from EMU, too. I love the community I work and play in.

It is said the average person will have three careers. I surpassed that long ago. I know this community from many different perspectives as I have worked in the restaurant industry, retail, construction, and city government.

Currently, I am the Executive Director for Think Local First; a membership organization that supports local independently owned businesses. It is my passion to help others see how they can make a difference in how their community looks and feels by how they send their dollars. Read my posts to see how you can make a difference. Small contributions can have a huge impact. We’re seeing it everywhere. Now is your chance to help, too! Stay tuned….
