* A Little About Myself


My name is Dustin Hongisto and I was born and raised in Ishpeming, MI.  I have also had the opportunity to live in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Oregon, and even New Zealand.  However, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan will always be my home.

As you may have guessed, I love to travel.  I have visited 31 of the 50 states so far and fully intend to see the rest.  I enjoy hiking, playing basketball, and hunting.  Perhaps most of all, I absolutely LOVE to golf!!  I have actually taught the game of golf to people ranging all the way from 3 to approximately 75 years of age.  Furthermore, I am currently the Boys and Girls Golf Coach at Negaunee High School...so practice up kids!

I moved back to Michigan in 2010 and am thrilled to be close to all of my family and childhood friends once again.  I graduated from Northern Michigan University's elementary education program in December, 2013.  I feel extremely fortunate to have found a job that is not only close to home, but also in the same district in which I coach.

The pictures below best represent me.  The beautiful young lady with me is my wife, Kim, and Oaklyn is our daughter.  She was born on June 17, 2017.  She is the center of our world, and we have thoroughly enjoyed our new role as parents!
