Mindi Huber was also born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. She attended New Richmond High School from 1999-2002 where she shaped a love for music and acting by participating in her school’s drama and choir programs. In 1999, Mindi and her sister, Tina, formed a musical sister-act and were awarded a record production deal with Legend Entertainment Studios. The two spent many years writing, recording, and performing music. After nearly ten years working in the music industry, she then attended the University of Cincinnati, gaining an interest in science and medicine while working part time as an on-camera spokesperson and model. Mindi graduated in 2011 with academic honors and was sent by her talent management to work in Los Angeles. After three years of a successful career recording music demos, hosting, modeling, and acting, she was one of the 2% of applicants accepted into the University of Southern California’s Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical program. However, she chose to continue her academic interests in her hometown of Cincinnati. Mindi pursued studies in biomedical sciences and work in cardiovascular research. In 2014 she was selected to present her research at the American Heart Association Conference in Dallas, Texas, as well as the Experimental Biology Conference in San Diego, California.

Kevin and Mindi were married in 2016 in Cincinnati, Ohio. The couple have two dogs, Zoey and Piper, who were the ultimate inspiration for FUR. Zoey is an Old English Bulldog who loves lazy walks, chicken flavored treats, and car rides. Piper is a Chug (Chihuahua/Pug) rescued from Sacred Hearts Animal Rescue and Sanctuary, who enjoys window benches, licking strangers in the face, and destroying stuffed toys. The Hubers found true love in each other and in their pets, and as a family have been inspired to advocate for the animal community through FUR.
