Greetings from the Mitten! My name is Delia, and it is my pleasure to be the Head Dame for Michigan. I was born, raised, and still reside in Kalamazoo. I am an Army Veteran – served 8 years with the 126 Army Band in Michigan. I served my country in the best way that I knew how which was bringing the Army's fine musical traditions and goodwill to those in attendance. Music will always play an active role in my life.


I have always been a lover of the great outdoors. Growing up, my parents took me camping almost every summer. We explored many areas, but there are many destinations still left on my list. My parents were responsible for planting “the love of the outdoors” seed in my heart. My goal as a Head Dame is to pass along my undying love for Mother Nature to those willing to accept it. So come, take a walk with me, and listen to the music of the earth!
