Leah Porritt
Mother, writer, runner, professional... and a little bit of a perfectionist

A behavior specialist by profession, Leah is an advocate of the inclusion of children with disabilities and finds passion in assisting parents with finding creative ways in which to provide supports for children with behavioral challenges. Leah enjoys finding the humor in parenting and sharing it as a way to encourage mothers to support each other. Once a Division I athlete, Leah still enjoys running and participating in races with her oldest son... even though she is much slower these days. New to the blogging world, but not new to writing, Leah shares her experiences as a mom, professional, runner, and everything in between at www.outofthenutshell.com. Leah lives in the Baltimore, MD area with her husband and three children.
