"Hi, my name is Aimee Ball. I live in Traverse City with my husband and four young children. My husband’s career in the United States Coast Guard has allowed us to live all over the United States. We have lived in North Carolina, Alaska, California, and Alabama, but have decided to call Traverse City home. My four children (6, 8,10,12) keep me very busy and entertained.
