Jeff Hillenbrand

Hillary Feerick and Jeff Hillenbrand have been married for 15 years and have two young children. Months before their first child was born, they began to delve more deeply into infant and maternal nutrition. Health and wellness were priorities for their family, and they wanted to give their children the healthiest start possible. Six years later, compelled by the difficulties of raising healthy children in a fast-paced, junk-food-filled world, they decided to combine their expertise in health (Jeff holds a BS in exercise science) and writing (Hillary holds a BA and MA in English and is an English teacher) to create Mitch Spinach, a healthy role model for children. They wrote the first book in the series, The Secret Life of Mitch Spinach, with a passion to help abate the trend in nutrition-related diseases, such as type II diabetes, childhood obesity, ADD, ADHD, and chronically low immune systems.
