Connie is a respected leader in the homeschooling community. She has provided a wealth of knowledge for me as I serve homeschool families in our great state of Florida. Her understanding and passion for education makes her highly sought after as a speaker.- Jeff Atwater, CFO of Florida
I have known Connie for over 25 years. In addition to homeschooling all five of her children and representing the homeschooling community, she worked as a senior adviser during my US Congressional campaign. God used her wisdom and leadership skills to keep our message and team focused on the people. – US Congressman Daniel Webster
What began with a simple question from her husband, Tom, “Would you prayerfully consider homeschooling?” began a journey that changed her family legacy forever. And established her as a national speaker and leader in the community.
After raising five children and homeschooling for 21 years, Connie continues to share with parents across the country equipping and supporting them in their journey. She helps parents catch a vision for their family, build strong family relationships and accomplish their goals.
Although she can speak on all subjects of homeschooling her most requested topics are preparing for the high school years, homeschooling teenagers and getting into college.
Throughout her homeschooling years she consistently challenged herself personally and professionally to tackle new projects, accept new positions and refine her skills. In addition to homeschooling she has worked as a Senior Strategist for US Congressional campaign, served as a Director and Board Member for a non-profit state homeschool organization and created a Communications Division as part of the re branding process which lead to teaming with Marketing Strategist to develop, assemble and execute a powerful grassroots community. The key was knowing how to balance the needs of her family while trusting God to open and close the doors along the way. Her believes, just because you can doesn’t mean you should. There are seasons in life, so don’t be afraid to say No! Homeschooling takes work and time to do it well.
All five of her children have the honor of being University of Central Florida Knights. Three have graduated and two are currently enrolled. She understands what it takes to keep all the plates spinning and finish well. Together they have been working in the college ministry at their church and leading weekly bible studies in their home.
Connie has been building relationships, communities, and businesses while engaging audiences both small and large for over 30 years. If you have something else in mind please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
She looks forward to speaking with you.
