About the Speaker
Connie grew up in Meadville, PA, in a family that modeled and taught a passion for reading.
She graduated from Eastern Nazarene College with a BS in Biology. Staying in the Boston area, she went to work at Brigham and Women’s Hospital doing research for the Pathology and Immunology departments.
Love and marriage moved her to the fine Commonwealth of Virginia where she has resided for the last 30 years. She continued in her chosen field of Biotechnology research for 5 years until just after the birth of her first child.
She continues to live in Northern Virginia where she and her husband raised two children, two dogs and countless rabbits. She home schooled both children with the help of many wonderful ladies from PreK through 12th. Throughout the years Connie has taught Chemistry, Biology, Life Sciences, AP Biology and STEM classes to other home schooled students.
After the graduation of her youngest, she teamed up with her daughter, Natalie, to create Hoot Book Revival, a website for homeschooling families to buy and/or sell their used books and curricula to other homeschooling families.
She has a passion for helping new homeschooling families find their way and speaks on how to start homeschooling, finding your homeschooling philosophy, and other related topics.
