I was born and raised in Colorado, until I graduated from the University of Colorado and decided, with my new husband, to trade the mountains for new scenery and moved out of state. Three years and several moves later, I once again called Colorado home – a home which after 25 of years of marriage now includes four wonderful children, one girl (21) and three boys (17, 13, and 9), and a new location in Sarasota. I’ve been homeschooling for over 17 years and have loved every minute of it! While living in Colorado I was involved with one of the largest Christian homeschool groups for 15 years, performing various ministerial roles as well as the role of Class Director. Children’s ministry has also been a passion of mine – I have been involved in many aspects since 1997 and served as director of children’s ministry for eight years. My heart is for families to be empowered in their homeschool journeys; for them to know their Heavenly Father is guiding them along their way. I am excited to serve with The Bridge and support the ministry’s growth through coming alongside families who seek to launch into the wonderful experience of homeschooling.
