About Me – Enjoying Family Life

My name is Theresa.

I’m a homeschooling/virtual schooling mom. After teaching in classrooms for years, I made the switch to stay at home. Creating and running a virtual filmmaking camp for kids allows me to finally have balance in my life.

Before getting an M.Ed in Elementary Education from Vanderbilt, I was an actress, producer, and casting director in New York, Los Angeles, and Nashville. I auditioned for a movie and ended up with a creative and inspiring husband and two wonderful children.

Celebrations are our specialty. We love making movie nights at home into major red carpet events.

Thanks for following along with our daily life, our recommendations, and more.

More about me:

As a child, I was always holding either a book or writing supplies. When my second grade teacher laminated my book covers, I saw myself as a writer.

I created Enjoying Family Life, originally known as Theresa’s Reviews, after I had been working in content creation.

Up to fifty hours a week, I was churning out article after article in college. Sometimes, I needed to fit in a few sentences on How to Style your Hair with Emo Hairstyles in the middle of taking my college notes on British History. I wrote about How to Boil a Chicken, Birthday Gift Ideas, and more.

Beginning my own blog was a step in a more creative direction. I could develop my own article ideas that involved more research, interviews, and travel. Since my husband had directed and written movies, making photos and videos became a fun family hobby.
