Ricci Black
Ricci Black is a veteran home school mom and the Ambassador Program Coordinator for the Home School Foundation (HSF). In this capacity she oversees the growth and development of the Ambassador Program, as well as doing a lot of the “on the ground” work herself. Between ambassador recruitment and training, traveling to conferences, and working with fundraising and development on the local level, Ricci manages to run her own home-based health and wellness business. And because she misses teaching at home, Ricci also substitute teaches Special Ed, which she says she enjoys because “I absolutely know I am making a difference.”

Ricci and her husband Dee (Senior Counsel for HSLDA) reside in northern Virginia. Ricci homeschooled their four children for 21 years, and now enjoys reading historical fiction, eating well, and exercising.
