Kathryn (Katie) is a Christian who gets excited about literature and writing, natural wellness, coffee and dancing (you might catch her grooving down the grocery store aisle). She and her husband, Dane, were both home schooled; they plan to one day home school their (now-infant) daughter. After college, Katie taught the full-range of subjects at a private academy, working primarily with dyslexic students. She loved helping students discover a passion for reading as a certified reading instructor. Currently, she is earning an MA in English and Creative Writing while teaching Zumba fitness and doing her best to figure out mommy-hood. She's excited to join the HHM as a "home school graduate" contributor. You can read more from Katie at Write Where You Are.


Trish is one of the owners of Hip Homeschool Moms. She has been married to her best friend, David, for 22 years and they have three sons (ages 19, 17 and 15). Trish is from the coast of North Carolina, but they now live in rural West Tennessee on a 40+ acre farm. She has been homeschooling since 2009 and her homeschool style leans towards a Montessori approach with a heavy emphasis on hands-on learning. Trish’s family is Messianic and they love studying the Scriptures, learning Hebrew and growing in their faith and walk daily. In her spare time, Trish loves to travel, write, work in their garden and can regularly be found trying to learn something new, modeling that learning is indeed a life-long endeavor!


Wendy is one of the owners of Hip Homeschool Moms. She married her high school sweetheart, Scott, 28 years ago, and they live in the South with their three children. Hannah, age 23, has autism and was the first homeschool graduate in the family. Noah, age 22, was the second homeschool graduate. Mary Grace, age 16, is the remaining homeschool student. Wendy loves working out and teaching Training for Warriors classes at her local gym. She also enjoys learning along with her family, educational travel, reading, and writing, and she attempts to grow an herb garden every summer with limited success.
