Author Bio

Staff pic_edited_edited.jpg

As a 20+ year veteran homeschool mom, I've taught every single subject from K3 to 12th grade.  I've used different curriculum, methodologies, and teaching strategies to help my children successfully navigate their educational journeys.  I love homeschoolers and love encouraging and supporting homeschool moms.  As a consultant, mentor, and friend, I delight in being a part of the amazing army of homeschool families. Now that my daughters have graduated from college and launched into their careers, I have shifted my role in education. 

 

As a lover of books I have found my happy place as an author and librarian. And, to top it off, I have also opened my dream shop filled with curiosities that promote faith, family, and fun. I love every part of what I do.
