I am a writer, photographer and homeschooling mom to two boys.

For over seven years, I wrote a newspaper column about daily life, homeschooling and motherhood. My non-fiction has appeared in numerous regional publications, and I’ve read several essays on WUGA.

This work led me to be invited to become the Senior Editor at home / school / life magazine, which I helped launch in the Spring of 2014. I have contributed dozens of articles, columns, and other work to this magazine and blog. I’m happy to see that the work I did there continues to inspire people.

My main focus is homeschooling my two boys. Homeschooling has given me the chance to get the education I always wanted, and I have found that living a life full of curiosity and exploration makes me a happy person.

I offer free homeschool coaching and would be happy to speak to your group. You can view my photography here or contact me at shellipabis (at) gmail (dot) com to inquiry about my writing/editing services.
