Melissa is the founder of Nibble+squeak. A former expat mama, she lived in London for a decade, and returned to her home turf (NYC) with pipsqueak-in-tow and an outsized appetite!

To connect with likeminded (read: food-obsessed) parents, she created Nibble+squeak, an inclusive dining community.

 Caroline and her family moved back to Nashville, TN in 2017 after living in Philadelphia for 5 years.  Caroline and her husband, Doug, met at the University of Tennessee and fell in love over a large bowl of pasta and a lively college football debate. They have a daughter, Parker Leigh, and a dog, Jones, who are inseparable and the best of friends.   She believes that the best way to get to know a new city is to eat your way through it and is currently obsessing over the growing food scene that Nashville has to offer.

 Meghan was born and raised in New Jersey.  Not one to shy away from adventure, she married a naval officer, moved cross-country (twice), lived abroad and even called an RV ‘home’ for several months.  When it came time to return to the civilian world, Meghan and her family chose to settle in Houston. Her latest adventure is exploring Houston’s expansive culinary scene (which represents more than 70 countries!) with her youngest diners!

  Washington DC : Ashley   Ashley lives in Alexandria, VA with her husband, Jeff, and daughter, Ruby. Ashley is originally from West Virginia and attended West Virginia University before going on to graduate school at Michigan State University for Marketing and Advertising. She moved to the DC area in 2009 where she endeavored to never visit the same restaurant twice for a year...which lasted about 3 months.

 Anne -- a Midwesterner by birth -- has made London her home for the last 13 years.  She lives on a converted Dutch Barge on the Thames with her zookeeper husband, two gigantic ginger Maine Coons and a rambunctious baby girl called Harper. To steal a line from her favourite podcast Sporkful: Anne is an eater, not a foodie. From corn dogs to coq au vin; sashimi to shepherd's pie; poutine to pickled herring -- and everything in between, the girl likes her food -- especially trying new things.

 Will travel for food...     Alicia is a voracious and enthusiastic eater.  Born and raised in Hawaii, she fell in love with plate lunch, spam musubi, and poke.  In her nine years in New York (at NYU as an undergraduate and as an attorney after law school) she often subsisted on street meat and the occasional Michelin-starred meal.  While living in San Francisco she gained a deep appreciation for wine and dim sum.  Now, if you can catch her at home in Seattle, you'll find her exploring up-and-coming restaurants and chefs when she's not cooking for (and with) her husband and daughter.

  Keenan and I met at a restaurant in Seattle; Keenan was working in the bar and I was working at the kitchen. We both love delicious food, spirit-driven cocktails, dry wines and top-notch restaurant service. Since having our little girl, Kawena, we have enjoyed exploring restaurants with her.

Omaha

 Sarah is a fan of all the things relating to good food, but especially dining in restaurants. Luckily Omaha has more restaurants per capita than any other city – or so the locals here like to say. With a background in mechanical engineering and sustainable design for commercial buildings, Sarah prides herself on attention to detail and effective communication. This comes in handy during her spare time, whether planning local foodie events or leading fitness classes. Speaking of spare time, there’s somehow less of that these days with a toddler and a baby. But there is no greater joy than hearing your child say those magic words, “More miso soup, please.”
