Jena, Nick and Christie moved to Encinitas, CA in 2020 and became friends while volunteering for their church’s youth group. Sharing a desire to build something great that made a difference in the world, we teamed up to start The Traveling Homeschool. We want to bring the travel experience to homeschool families, whether or not you have the freedom to travel.

Our goal is to help you create memorable family experiences that have the potential to mold and shape your kids (and yourselves). Our philosophy is that the best form of learning is by doing. Not just soaking in information, but experiencing it first hand. Our goal is to also create a community of homeschool parents who enjoy traveling. A place where you can connect with others who share a passion for adventure and new experiences.


Jena & Nick’s three kids were homeschooled for many years. Jena was the driving force behind the decision, and she willingly poured herself into the role of teaching the kids. Nick & Jena shared a love for travel, and since Nick’s business was 100% online, they had the freedom to go on lots of family adventures together. With New Orleans, LA as their home base, they traveled all over the United States and internationally. Some of their international trips included: Australia, Mexico, Dublin, France, UK, and Italy. As the kids (now 20, 18 & 16 years old) transitioned into a school setting one-by-one, everyone noticed how much exploring and experiencing new cultures shaped and molded them. Travel gave them a different perspective on life. In many ways, it made them who they are today.


Christie’s desire for travel was sparked from the moment she had the opportunity to travel to the Dominican Republic in 2010 for a service trip. Ever since then, planning weekend excursions became her full-time hobby and she gladly assumed the role as “the trip planner” amongst her friend groups. Christie finds joy in carefully accounting for all the details that go into creating a memorable experience. After having lived in Australia, South Carolina, Italy, Texas and a few places between, she’s now settled in San Diego, CA where she’s enjoying laying roots in the community. You can typically find her walking to local coffee shops, coaching middle school volleyball, and swimming in the ocean with her friends.
