New AFHE Board Couple – Michael and Kristina Abbott

We are pleased to introduce AFHE’s newest board couple, Michael and Kristina Abbott.

Michael and Kris Abbott have been married since 2006 after meeting in college in southwestern Pennsylvania. They felt called to homeschool their children shortly after experiencing the birth of their first son. With the older of their two children now entering kindergarten in 2020, they stand with excitement at the starting line of the journey to lead their children unto a knowledge of the Lord.

Michael has worked in the banking and financial industries since 2003, and he plans to leverage these skill sets to function as the Treasurer of AFHE. Michael is a passionate advocate of limiting screen media access to young children due to the complications it presents to the natural cognitive development process. Kris worked as a pharmacist from 2004 through 2020, recently stepping down from her position to lead the family academic curriculum. She tutors the third grade class of her local, cooperative homeschooling group, and she also leads a weekly women’s ministry group at her church. Michael and Kris both serve in the youth ministry program at their church in Scottsdale.
