Today’s #MeetTheMemberMonday is Nicholas Hemwall (Hemi)! This man has the biggest heart and has been such a passionate member of GMB throughout the years. He has received his Master of Education at UT while student teaching at Toledo Early College. He will be coaching football at Jefferson High School in Monroe, MI this fall, and his favorite quote is, “It's being here now that's important. There's no past and there's no future...All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past...and we can hope for the future, but we don't know if there is one.” -George Harrison

It's #MeetTheMemberMonday and so many of you already know our featured member, Claire, aka @bumbleandbustle, pictured here in Alaska with a furry friend. Claire's a #chicagogrammers family fave for so many reasons - is it her positive attitude, her love of travel, her ever-present cell phone charger, her sense of humor, the fact that she's a girl's girl or maybe it's those adorable mugs she makes and sells on Etsy! And don't get us started about her awesome blog (cause we'd never stop)! She's got so much going on, and we are so glad she's a part of the group! If you haven't given her a follow, you should, and then proceed immediately to the Etsy store!

Our #MeettheMemberMonday is @newheightsassistedliving 🎉🤗
New Heights Assisted Living has been part of the Clarkston community for just over a year and is run by Sarah and Julian Thomas.

When asked her favorite part of running the care facility Sarah says, “it is all worth it when she sees the rejoiced look of those resided in the home”. Celebrating life with each resident is something New Heights takes pride in each and everyday. Check out New Heights where they are, “Taking quality care and purposeful living to new Heights”! 😊👍🏽
