Dina is a working mother who lives in Connecticut with her husband and two little boys, Jack (2) and Sam (1). Her PR career includes stops at Disney, Yahoo and Babycenter. Although nothing is more important than caring for her family, she is admittedly “eco-challenged.” In an effort to try to create a healthy and safe home for her family, she has committed to take part in the weekly MightyNest Eco-challenge. Follow along as Dina, like so many of us, tries to create a MightyNest!
