Homeschooling mom of 7, Cyndi started homeschooling 25 years ago, when it wasn’t quite so fashionable. She has successfully launched 6 of her 7 children to the world of university studies. They have earned 5 degrees, including BYU Law, so far. She helped found Polar Star Academy, a commonwealth school, in 2001 and it continues to serve youth in the Weber and Davis County areas of Utah. She has directed Shakespearean plays for 15 years and loves the magic of seeing youth transform as they do hard things. She is a big believer in extreme volunteerism and has seen the payback in her own family.
