Whitney and I met on-line. She and I met because I had been admiring her from a far (well, not so afar – from my phone screen) and was completely in love with her POV.
Whitney is a young, full time working mom of 3 littles with a very cute husband, She’s awesomely authentic on Instagram in how she shares her delicious recipes, her family, her wit and charm all via her on line platform; Jew Hungry. She’s so clever and so in her lane that I simply wanted to get to know her and be her friend.
Whitney Fisch received her Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Michigan and is currently working as The Director of Health and Wellness at Milken Community Schools’ Upper School Campus in Los Angeles, CA. When not dealing with the trials and tribulations of roughly 600 high schoolers, she is at home dealing with the trials and tribulations of her 3 children as well as cooking… a lot. Whitney’s blog is AWESOME and if you don’t know it – you SHOULD!! Here’s a few things you may not know about her – enjoy!
