I grew up in Batesville, IN, which is about 30 minutes from Cincinnati, OH. I am a huge Bengals fan! I went to Shepherd and fell in love with the area. My husband, Chad, is from Ravenswood, WV. We have two boys, Jude (8) and Max (5) attending Back Creek Valley Elementary. We love the outdoors and frequent the Wellness Center.
