Below is my vocational biography. Kind of like a resume. For a personal biography (where I'm from etc...) see this page. For the back story to my blog see my blog about page.

Hi, I'm Renee and I work with People, Ideas, and Spirit.

In the late 90's I graduated with a Bachelors degree in Education and immediately went to work, not in the classroom, but in my home; raising and homeschooling my children, making a home and managing our family life, and eventually becoming a blogger and writer.

From that foundation I have become a freelancer and launched creative projects; work that has honed and developed my skills and service in the following three areas:

  • human growth & development
  • writing, communications & teaching
  • management & organization

I write, teach, think about, talk about, and take care of things related to human wellbeing in personal, familial, community, and educational contexts.

In winter 2021 I will be returning to university as a grad student in Educational Studies to dive into thinking, reading, studying, and researching human wellbeing in the educational context and how I can contribute to human flourishing in that domain.

Homeschool Teaching, Speaking & Coaching

I do a lot of things. In twenty years of parenting and homemaking, fifteen years of homeschooling and blogging, and nine years of freelance work as a writer, content creator, and manager I've developed a diverse and unique skill set and experiences in support of one main goal - human flourishing.

I'm a writer, thinker, and educator. I manage and create safe spaces, explore and communicate ideas, and produce content that supports people's wellbeing and advances human growth and development.
