Julie Ott - Director of Customer Relations
Julie heads up our Customer Service department and has been part of the TOS family for the last five years+. Her kids would tell you she is a fun, energetic, creative mom, and a true educator at heart. She has professionally taught high school business and accounting (8 years), homeschooled her 4 children (20+ years), been a periodical instructor at the local college and weekly teacher of the high school Sunday school class. She also sews wedding dresses, provides in-home care assistance for two individuals, cooks, bakes bread, gardens with her husband, and sings on the worship team. If she’s not busy with normal activities (or even if she is), you can always find her thinking up new chores for her kids. Julie says, “My mission at TOS as with the rest of my life is to know Christ and make Him known.”
Stephanie Ziemba - Customer Service Representative
Homeschooled for 11 years herself, Stephanie is now married with two small children of her own whom she plans to homeschool when they are ready to begin their education. She enjoys being a wife and mom, being involved in their church and spending time outdoors. Stephanie says, “It is my mission with TOS to be a blessing and encouragement to others on their homeschooling journey.”
Laura Fox - Customer Service Database Specialist
A homeschool graduate herself, Laura Fox has been working in the homeschool world since graduating from college in 2000. She joined the TOS team in 2005. Laura and her husband (also a homeschool graduate) live in California with their three young children. This year, she began her journey as a homeschool mom when her daughter started preschool. Laura enjoys spending time with family and friends. She also enjoys photography, playing the piano, camping, crafting, and water sports. My mission at TOS is to show God’s love by encouraging new and veteran homeschool families in their journey to educate their children.
Kristen Hamilton and her husband, Kevin, have been home-educating their five children since their eldest’s birth in 1998.
