About Jamie McMillin
Jamie McMillin graduated from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in 1989 and spent the next five years working with buoys, daybeacons and LORAN stations in Texas and Alaska. She then graduated to full-time motherhood, and homeschooling her three kids from Kindergarten through high school. In all that time, she pursued her passion for research and learning how to do things better.
Her own experience, and interest in how successful people learned without school, led to her recent book: Legendary Learning: The Famous Homeschoolers’ Guide to Self-Directed Excellence, published in 2012. Her latest project is OLLY, the Organized Life and Learning Yearbook, a Mac and iOS based record-keeping/planning application for homeschooling families and micro schools.
