Ellen Riebow

Ellen Riebow grew up in a large, upbeat city on the coast, and now lives in a small, low-key country town. She has a background in Nutrition and Physical Wellness from the American College of Sports Medicine and is a stay-at-home mom to a very active toddler boy. Other than being a freelance writer, she loves being outdoors, is learning the French language, and dreams of dancing ballet again. She's been married, since 2008, to her best friend, Matthew, and currently resides in Louisiana, where he produces the local NBC news. She loves spending time with her family and documenting her son, as he grows and discovers the simple things, in our beautiful corner of the world. Ellen's hope is that her nutrition articles will educate, comfort, and bring hope to families who struggle with wellness, so they can achieve a brighter, healthier, and longer life.
