Sabrina has been mom in a blended family with 7 kids, 3 of whom were traditionally schooled and 4 of whom were homeschooled all the way from K to graduation. They have gone on to pursue a wide variety of endeavors as adults, living out the Homeschool High School Podcast motto that says “There’s not ONE RIGHT WAY” to homeschool, or to do life after graduation.
****************
Vicki works as a counselor in her regular job, and offers life and career coaching services at vickitillmancoaching.com. Vicki helped found a large homeschool “umbrella school” and served that community for almost 20 years as upperclassmen academic advisor and teacher (where she helped hundreds of students take the next steps toward college or career). She graduated all 5 of her children from homeschool. They are all pursuing or have completed varying levels of college degrees from BA to PhD.
****************
Kym Smythe
Kym is the life of the party. She’s a homeschool mom of 4 graduates, a hockey mom, a seeing-eye puppy raiser, a teacher of Spanish and Russian and leadership skills to local homeschool highschoolers. What Vicki and Sabrina really appreciate is Kym’s extroverted sense of fun, which helps all 3 of them make friends where ever they go.
