Dawn Verbrigghe was lucky enough to have job offers in Paris and Ann Arbor. She chose Michigan.

Not too long ago, Upper Peninsula native Dawn Verbrigghe had a career humming along in super-cool Brooklyn.

Then, out of the blue, came two job offers. One, in Paris, which promised a rooftop apartment in the City of Light. The other offer: Ann Arbor, Michigan.

 
Spoiler alert: she chose Ann Arbor. 
 
Verbrigghe joined Stateside to explain why she thinks the city is a “nascent but burgeoning technology community.”
