Abby Hager

I am originally from New Hampshire and moved to the Cincinnati area in 2003. I am a mom to my two amazing boys, Eli (13) and Ethan (10). We currently live on the West Side of Cincinnati in Cheviot. I have a degree in healthcare management and work full-time in Cincinnati. I have shared parenting of my boys, so when we are together, we are sure to make the most of our time! Whether it's seeing Madcap Puppets, exploring the numerous local parks, enjoying the Cincinnati Pops, or cheering on our Cincinnati Redlegs, I strive to expose my boys to as many aspects of culture that I can! We have LOVED all the opportunities to explore Cincinnati and everything it has to offer families! We are avid Reds fans so you will likely find us at Great American Ballpark quite a bit during baseball season. It's our 2nd home during the summer! I enjoy music (I've played piano for 30 years) as well as being crafty (as time allows!), making crazy cool cakes, and relaxing with my boys, our dog Frankie, our 2 cats Luna & Lyra, and guinea pigs Holly & Mocha (we have quite the animal kingdom)! At this point in my life, there's really no where else I'd rather be, than here in Cincinnati with my family!
