I grew up in northern Ohio, but have lived in Cincinnati for over 19 years. I am a registered dietitian and I have specialized in child nutrition for 20 years. My husband, Scott, and I live in Pleasant Ridge and have 2 boys. I enjoy cooking, exercise, and planning vacations. Our favorite places to vacation are the many beautiful National Parks that our nation has to offer. I work for a local pediatrician and I have my own private nutrition practice specializing in child nutrition.
