Nora Shank was born in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., where she was raised with more than a big city idea of work. After several entrepreneurial candy and lemonade stands, she learned how to run a successful catering business before pursuing her love of food and wellness as registered dietitian. She now works as a personal health consultant and resides in Virginia. She is married to Travis and they have two children, Kate and Grant. Nora tries to live up to the Miles Standish proverb that those who don't work, don't eat--she tries to do both wholeheartedly.
