Hello!  Thank you so much for your interest in our amazing program at Everest Point Homeschool Academy (EPHA).  I started this program to meet the needs of our homeschooling families in a friendly, safe, and opportunistic environment.  I myself became a homeschooling mom after 9 years in the traditional education system.  I have been working with the homeschooling community for over 5 years, and it has become a true passion of mine.  I have been extremely blessed to be surrounded by the great group of people found in the homeschool community.  I started EPHA with the intention of providing an experience that cannot be found elsewhere for those who are choosing a non-traditional form of educating their children.  I have been married to my husband Shawn for 18 years and I have two sons, Noah and Levi.  I LOVE animals and live in the country where we have a dog, four cats and several chickens.  I also LOVE storms.  Please feel free to reach out to me.  I'm here to help!

Hello! I have been with Everest Point since our successful beginning, and it is my joy to be a part of watching your children learn and grow! You will see me at the front desk each week, and I am always here to lend a helping hand.

I have been happily married to my husband for 17 years. We have three children that we have been homeschooling since 2014. I love watching my children benefit from this learning/life style! In my free time, I enjoy reading, photography, camping and four-wheeling, and tending to my farm animals.

I have several years of experience in graphic/web design and management, as well as administrative office/customer service. I am also an on-spot photographer. I love to be of assistance to any new homeschool families, or contemplating homeschool families looking for help getting started!

Hi, my name is Kim Romero and I’m the new administrative assistant at Everest Point. I live in Brighton with my husband and two children, Lyla and Dane. Both Lyla and Dane have attended Everest Point since it’s been open and we love it! As a family, the four of us like to go fishing, metal detecting, searching for arrowheads and taking our newest addition in our family, our dog Riley on walks.

I grew up on a dryland wheat farm in Roggen, CO. and my family still farms today. I met my husband 16 years ago while we both were working at the airport, and we have been happily married for 11 years! I look forward to this opportunity to assist Mrs. Burkeen and Mrs. Rosenbach and can’t wait to meet everyone.
