Hello! It is great to meet you! I am originally from San Jose, California. After high school, I attended San Jose State University where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education. Today, I currently reside in Nashville, TN with my husband of twenty-five years and our two sons.

For as long as I can remember, English, grammar, and writing have always been a passion of mine. I discovered IEW when my oldest son was in seventh grade. Enrolled in a class, my son's instructor required parents to attend classes; therefore, if their child needed assistance at home, the parent could assist.

Over the years, I attended six different leveled classes. Both of my boys were successful with IEW. I was hooked! I knew that I wanted to teach this amazing method of writing to other homeschoolers. Immediately, I became certified as an IEW instructor and have been teaching IEW for the past five years.

Today, both my sons, thanks to IEW, are success writers. One just graduated with a degree in Commercial Music Major from Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, Tennessee. My other son, is a senior at Heritage Christian Academy, a homeschooling tutorial in Nashville.

I look forward to sharing my knowledge of IEW and the Theme Based Programs with you and your children!
