Nick and Rami Winnenberg
Sales Manager and Operations Manager
Okay, we lied. This is actually a group dance – instead of couples only. Dancing with Nick and Rami is their 16-week old baby-to-be as the couple is pregnant with their first child. So please, don’t buy Rami a drink. (You can totally buy Nick a drink though, he needs it.)
Nick and Rami Winnenberg met on their very first day of college at Ohio University in Athens Ohio (2011). They were best friends for years before they eventually, inevitably, started dating. Three months into their relationship – they spent the summer together as camp counselors. The following year they spent six months living together in Wales, completing a student exchange program. Both experiences united them as a family – and they made it official in July of 2017.
They work together in a family staffing firm in Eastgate but are both very active in the community – sitting on a number of boards and committees. They, in partnership with the chamber, also started Loveland Young Professionals They live in the Hearthstone neighborhood, near the Oasis. Living with them is 2 cats (Kahlua and Tali), 2 dogs (Hargird and Luna), and Rami’s brother while he is on break from college.
