About Us

 

Natalie Mack is a mom of five, inactive licensed therapist, Navy Chaplain’s wife, military home educator since 2001, President of Belvoir Home Educators, soccer mom, Scouts BSA Merit Badge Coordinator, business owner, and newbie writer/ blogger. Her passions include people, homeschooling, travel, her alma mater- Spelman College, cooking/baking, languages, history and genealogy research.

She received her Masters in Education with a concentration in Community Counseling from the George Washington University in Washington DC and her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Spanish from her beloved alma mater, Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia.


Hanging up her therapist shingle, she followed God’s leading to home educate her children in 2001- right before 9-11. She has launched 3 of her 5 children to college and on to graduate school or professional careers. Her 4th student is a virtual freshman at GMU Honors College leaving her youngest at home who is entering 8th grade. She has founded and led military homeschooling groups throughout her homeschool journey.


She is an Independent Consultant with Paparazzi Accessories, selling gorgeous nickel and lead-free budget-friendly jewelry.

As a military naval spouse, she has lived all over the world. Homeschooling abroad in Europe was an incredible opportunity. She and her family of 7 traveled as often as they could to bring history and culture alive for their children.

In response to many requests to provide marital enhancement workshops and how to homeschool seminars, Natalie and her husband established Mack Family Consulting LLC.

In 2017, she put on her caregiving hat by relocating her mother-in-love to reside with them. As a result, she later pinned her very new blog, Life in the Middle, which is a forum for discussion about the Sandwich Generation as well as other topics. She is also a writer for The Old Schoolhouse Magazine having written articles on military life and the sandwich generation.
