Heidi Christianson – One of this Year’s Organizers

Heidi get’s ideas and follows through with them.  Years ago when she was sitting at dinner with friends talking about how to meet the needs of the homeschool community, she got an idea and the 2013 Transformational Education Conference first came in to being.  She did it on her own, finding speakers and location,  and realized that she needed to team up with others to get her message across. A couple years later she was asked by Brooke McClure to help get the Back to Basics Forum going.  She is passionate about helping homeschoolers – especially those with high school students.  Here is more information about her workshops:
