Crystal Gwinnup

I'm a wife, stay at home mom of 9, and many more micro titles that are too many to list here. Haha!
I NEVER saw myself homeschooling, ever! I didn't even know it was a thing before I was married in 2003. I resisted the idea of homeschooling for years. I finally gave in when we made a move to the midwest and said "I'll take it one year at a time." Well I've been homeschooling since 2010 and have kept renewing my commitment to my kids, husband, and the Lord every year.
My kids and I can't wait to meet you in the near future. We look forward to working together with you and your family. 💚

Christy Dunham

Hello homeschool families! My name is Christy and I am a mama to five beautiful humans. I’ve been at this homeschooling thing for awhile now and I love it! My oldest two are homeschool graduates and I’m currently learning with my 14, 6, and 3 year old. My favorite thing about homeschooling is getting to see my children grow their love of learning and experience the wonder of the world through their eyes.

Allison Buenviaje

I’m Allison and have been homeschooling my four children since 2016. I was born and raised in the south county of San Diego and am so blessed to be a part of growing the homeschool community down here! My family and I look forward to meeting you and being a part of your homeschool journey!

Katrina Phruksukarn

Hi, I’m Katrina! I spent my childhood in Maine, climbing trees and playing in the woods for hours on end. I relocated to San Diego County over 20 years ago and now live in La Mesa with my wonderful husband and 3 boys. We began homeschooling in fall of 2020, and we haven’t looked back! We love our new homeschool lifestyle, but we missed being part of a community. My goal with leading this collective is to build community, create long-term friendships, and bring people together to share ideas, knowledge, laughter, tears, curriculum, and everything else that goes along with this amazing homeschool journey. I look forward to meeting you!

Veronica Herrera

Hello! I am a wife, mother of four, and pretty new to the homeschool world. I have three boys and one daughter. Our homeschool journey began when we decided to part ways with the public school system in the fall of 2020.

My passions include photography, teaching, sewing, all things crafty, and anything else that allows me to express my creativity. My family loves enjoying the sunshine! In our free time, you can catch us walking around the Zoo, Safari Park, and Balboa Park, going to the movies, or at one of our favorite restaurants.

Before we parted ways with the public school system, I worked as a Paraprofessional in our local district. I have seven years of experience teaching small group instruction with children from TK - 8th grade, specifically with children having a variety of special needs.

Sara Conner

My current projects are stepping into a Lead position with HSC so I can help build an awesome community of local homeschoolers, all while raising rabbits, quail, and chickens. We look forward to meeting every one of you and hearing your homeschool stories!

Ashley Flahive

Hi! I’m Ashley, and Rob is my husband. We’ve been married since 2008 and have 3 kids: Walker, Cora, and Dexter. We have homeschooled since 2013 in Virginia, Hawaii, and now in California. We moved to the Fallbrook/Bonsall area around 2021.
Our family loves Jesus, music & art, board games, swimming, science, world culture, video games, and so much more. We’ve really started to explore our passions and interests over the last year or so as we’ve transitioned into a “big kid” family. There just isn’t enough time to learn it all!

We like to spend our days roller blading/skateboarding (yes me too, although we aren’t really great at any of it, yet), playing games, and playing outside, including pool and beach days. We love to connect with homeschooling families all over North County and San Diego ❤️
