BRENDA DICKINSON

President, Founder

Without Brenda, there would be no HEF and no HEF Connect. Parents in Florida would not enjoy the freedoms to educate their own children as they do. As Craig and Brenda pioneered home education in Florida, it became clear that a full-time lobbyist in Tallahassee was needed and HEF was created. Then to further the support for the Home Education Community, HEF Connect, Inc. was launched to provide opportunities, information and assistance to home education students and parents across Florida.
