GHF Board of Directors
Lisa Sticca-Conrod, JD, MS
President / General Counsel
“GHF is an amazing place for professionals and homeschooling parents to share information and resources to enrich the homeschooling experience for both the gifted child and the parent. I am so honored to be part of this organization which has this fantastic legacy of providing support for homeschooling families of gifted children, and I sincerely hope that my experience, both personal and professional, can be of the highest value to an organization of this caliber.”
Secretary / Director, Marketing
“GHF’s beautiful collective of experts (not know-it-alls), veteran parents and educators (not reductive rule-dispensers) and fellow self-doubting noobs (most of whom discover they’re gifted themselves) held me steady and equipped me with the confidence, knowledge and resources to do what’s best at different stages of development for each of my four gifted (three, 2e) kids, both educationally and emotionally – how does someone adequately say ‘thank you’ for that?! What started out as a way to manifest my gratitude has evolved into a never-ending cycle of getting more sustenance from this community than I can ever repay, so I happily surrender and am content with doing what I can.”

Carol Malueg, M.A., GCT, 2e
Director, GHF Choices
“I found GHF, or GHF found me, when my youngest was midway through her senior year of high school. For both of our kids we had employed strategies like acceleration, online learning, partial homeschool, and early college to help them maintain their joy in learning. I am a strong advocate for helping gifted learners find their best educational fit within their unique constraints, which include time, location, access, and know-how. GHF opens many doors for families who are interested in, or actively pursuing, a non-traditional path to K-12 education for their gifted learners. I wish I’d found GHF sooner, but I am so very glad to now be a part of the work GHF does to support families on this amazing journey.”
Barry Gelston, M.Ed.
Immediate Past President
“GHF has made a profound impact on my life. I have been a member of GHF as both a parent and as a professional. I found my people and discovered that I had something unique to offer our community. GHF was my portal into the gifted community.
I have been honored to have been the President of GHF and to bring forward the mission of the organization to a new generation. Today, as Immediate Past President, I am excited to carry on with the GHF Expert Series and GHF Professionals Group.”
Kasi Ann Peters
Director, GHF Choices
“GHF brings together both of my passions; homeschooling and supporting families of gifted children! As a parent group facilitator, I’ve always known that gifted families need a unique community and as a mom of 2 gifted children, who is also homeschooling, it’s clear that being extra outside the box requires an even more unique community. GHF is that community and I’m grateful to have the opportunity to help create our support system!”

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”.~ Marcel Proust
“My journey with my two complex outliers led us through public, private, homeschool, online, specialty schools, and radical acceleration. This journey through the range of educational environments, opened my eyes to seek a community that supports both our children and parental health and wellbeing. GHF is my place where parents from different places, backgrounds, values, and experiences come together to find a safe community that increases our understanding and learning across our lifespans.”
Dr. Erinn Fears Floyd
“GHF means a safe, supportive space for allies and families to celebrate the gifts and talents of gifted students from all backgrounds and talent levels without question while the world around them fights about who gets to be gifted. Despite others’ opinions of their “gifts” or challenges and barriers faced in traditional educational spaces, GHF welcomes students with open arms to just “be” and create with a profound focus on making each tomorrow better than each today.”
Lisa Jobe, Esq.
“GHF’s mission, to empower every gifted family to make strategic, proactive, and intentional educational choices, mirrors my own mission to share, support, and grow together in this community. As a veteran homeschool parent of two profoundly gifted learners who, like so many, were unable to find the best educational path in traditional classrooms, I understand the desperate need our families have for support and community. GHF fulfills these important needs for gifted/2e families in many different ways. GHF’s welcoming and inclusive access for all gifted/2e families is also near to my heart as together we strive to expand access for gifted support.”
