Hello, I'm Carrie! A transplant to Springboro from Cincinnati, always in search of new adventures and fun for my family. Married for five years now, I have a three-year-old little dude and am a stepmom to a 12-year-old boy (going on 16). Trained as a Social Worker (LISW-S), I left my job of 10 years to temporarily dive into the life of a SAHM. In my "spare time," I love to hit the trails for a run, travel to distant lands, or dabble in photography.
