Rachel Whims

Raised in Cincinnati, I love partaking in everything our city has to offer. From the museums to the zoo to the parks and events for kids, I love introducing my children to the culture and enriching activities in our city. I grew up playing piano and clarinet and dancing ballet. I have a Masters degree in education and worked in healthcare before becoming a stay-at-home mom to my two sons. Life with two extremely active young boys, ages 3 and 1 is chaotic, but I am loving the opportunity to see them grow into little people! I've always been a writer and educator at heart and dream of becoming a children's author.
