- in Magazine, March 2019

In 2005, our kids had a chance to be on the cover of the former Cleveland/Akron Family Magazine. What a thrill that was! As I always was a fan of these local parenting magazines, this planted a seed that took root eight years later when we embarked on the adventure to create a new magazine that filled the void left in the market.

Northeast Ohio Parent was born in March 2014 and grew from the passion to create a great local resource for parents looking to enrich their families’ lives.

At this five-year anniversary mark for Northeast Ohio Parent, I thought it worthwhile to look back and express gratitude to those who have make this magazine, its events and its related properties successful.
