My Mission Statement

I love to help parents and their children experience the same great joy, fulfillment and success that so many others have experienced through homeschooling! I explain topics -- like homeschooling and education, parenting and mentoring, personal productivity and household organization, goal-setting and scheduling, and more -- in the simplest of terms, with loads of practical examples and training along the way. I help transform audiences as we all learn and have fun together! I leave audiences changed, empowered, well-equipped, and brimming with the confidence they need to navigate the homeschooling universe of information and put specific ideas into practice in their own lives.
