Debra Brinkman - Assistant to the Product Reviews Director
Debra is sometimes shocked to see how far her life has strayed from her initial career as a CPA. She has been married to Dale for 19 years, and they are the parents of four boys young men and one little girl. They’ve been homeschoolers all along and prefer a literature-based approach utilizing as many read-alouds and audiobooks as possible. Being a family of geeks, they also tend towards loads of science. Although they currently live on the Eastern plains of Colorado, they do try to make it “home” to North Dakota and Minnesota a couple times a year. You can find Debra blogging at Footprints in the Butter.
