About Us

ENRICHri was founded in 2009 by 10 homeschooling families in Rhode Island who gathered weekly for support and fun. By 2010, the group was quickly expanding and saw that there was a growing desire for the secular homeschool community to come together.

The following years brought rapid growth and a more formal structure, along with an Executive Board. The Board worked to create a vision and mission statement, policies, and bylaws and started meeting monthly to organize and develop programming. Today, with a strong foundation in place, our group continues to thrive with parent support groups, seminars, and connections in the community.

ENRICHri is financially supported through its yearly membership fees, cooperative programs and donations. These cover a variety of expenses such as insurance, building rentals, administrative costs, technology costs, special events and annual state filings.

Our Leadership & Key  Volunteers



Amanda Campbell current president has been a part of the behind the scenes magic of ENRICHri in a number of roles for the last few years. Her favorite is being a teacher at co-op.

She is wife to Brent, mama to Willow and Elowyn and their dog Gypsy. Fun fact, everyone in the Campbell household (even Gypsy) is a redhead! Amanda believes that instilling a lifelong love of learning in her girls is her main job.

Vice President


Emily McKenzy lives in Rumford with her husband, daughter, two passive aggressive cats, and dog– Gracie. She has volunteered in several capacities through ENRICHri since starting her homeschool journey in 2019, and loves the community that she’s built here. Emily is passionate about homeschooling, and can probably be found researching curriculum in her spare time. Her professional background includes directing youth and children’s programming, communications, and is currently pursuing her Master’s in clinical counseling. She also enjoys painting, her most recent library haul, gardening, beach combing, and drinking decaf iced coffee.



Blake Corbishely comes to ENRICHri from Aquidneck Island.  Prior to her work educating her children, Blake developed education programs for a variety of institutions, both at home and abroad. She has a master’s degree from the University of Edinburgh, in Scotland. She and her kids love homeschooling, and they are very grateful for the support and community of ENRICHri.

Since childhood, Blake has been fascinated by the meaning and purpose of education. As an adult, she remains driven by these questions, as well as by the goal of ensuring that quality, meaningful, purposeful education is accessible to all students.  She hopes that her work with ENRICHri will help to further this aim.



Aimee lives with her family just over the border in Massachusetts. Most of her career she worked as a pet groomer until her first of two children was born and she focused on being a full time parent. She started homeshcooling early on crafting her own curriculum and joined ENRICH in 2022 after moving to the area from Cape Cod.  She is passionate about learning, animals, the environment, and community. You can usually find Aimee outside by the fire pit surrounded by cats, dogs, and chickens.

Membership Director


Tricia has been part of ENRICHri since 2020.  She only found herself here thanks to Covid and never planned to homeschool. After having experienced co-ops and the amazing community and inclusive families she could not imagine sending Will to school. She is so glad to have found ENRICHri and looks forward to being an active part of the community.

Tricia lives in Johnston with her husband, Sean and 7 year old son Will. By night she is a postpartum doula, newborn care specialist, and pediatric sleep consultant. By day she is a mom trying to figure out if she’s doing it right.

Communications Director


My name is Jackie, I live in Riverside RI with my husband and our two children Sal and Jade. In my free time you’ll find me either in the garden, reading, or making yummy treats! We joined ENRICHri in 2020 when we finally made the jump into homeschooling. We always considered homeschooling, but like many, Covid pushed us into it and we fell in LOVE!! 

ENRICHri has provided me with so much knowledge and support that I am happy to give back by volunteering. I volunteer as the Communications Director, and my main job is to keep members up to date via weekly emails. I enjoy keeping people in the loop on events and supporting them on their homeschool journeys.

Director of Public Relations


Lauren Kasz has been an ENRICHri member since 2020 when her daughter began Pre-K. She is excited by how much their homeschool community has grown and flourished recently, which inspired her to co-found Woodland Wanderers, an elementary co-op through ENRICHri.

With her background in journalism and communications, Lauren hopes to help spread the word about the amazing things that go on within the ENRICHri community and to open up more exciting opportunities for its families.

Lauren lives in Coventry with her husband, daughter and fur babies. Her downtime is spent reading fantasy novels, gardening and exploring the woods.

Member Advocate


Melissa Robb – The ENRICHri Advocacy Team supports our members by keeping on top of any potential threats to our current homeschooling rights in Rhode Island. Taking action before a problem occurs is key.  This is true at a state level but especially important at a district level, yes, we monitor all 36 school districts in our little state.  I am proud to lead this hard-working team of 9 (including me!) dedicated homeschool parents.  

I live in Warwick with my husband, son, and the 2 most adorable cats in the world. My son, Ian, was homeschooled since birth and is now a pre-law student at Roger Williams University. We chose to homeschool for many reasons but maintaining our scrumptious family lifestyle was certainly right at the top of the list. It was, in part, a selfish decision because I loved being with Ian so much that sending him to school seemed unimaginable. I have no regrets!

I was almost a founding member of this group, joining very soon after the first mamas gathered together in a backyard to create what would become ENRICHri (my family was membership #27!!).  Since that very beginning, I have served on the ENRICHri Executive Board in various positions before moving to the Member Advocate Director position.  Since 2015 I have been happy to support the incoming military families as Homeschool Liaison for the Newport Naval Base. In that role, I am able to use my experiences as a native Rhode Island homeschooler and advocate to smooth their transition to our state.

Homeschooling led me to my “paying job”.. Druidawn!  Druidawn is an RPG (think Dungeons and Dragons) but with a creative writing element at its core.  I first experienced Druidawn by Ian’s side at an ENRICHri class.  I was hooked, fast forward 10 years and now I have the best job in the world as a teacher/gamemaster (I don’t mind being called Druidawn Master of the Universe) running Druidawn adventures on Outschool.

I enjoy traveling (most often as part of Ian’s extensive Pokémon TCG tournament schedule) with my family.  I dabble in paper and fiber arts (I learned to use a spinning wheel!), board games (if you have to ask “do we own too many games?” the answer is YES!), and taking daily walks (in ALL weather) with my husband.   And, yeah, I enjoy helping homeschoolers in Rhode Island, it’s a very enriching part of my life!

Assistant Member Advocate


Donna Wedge lives in Coventry, RI with her husband Richard, grandson, and a menagerie of animals.  Their family joined ENRICHri in 2013 to build community when their grandson was three, having decided homeschool was the path they would choose for his education.

She has always had a passion for advocacy having served on Federal Women’s Rights Committee, as a Rape Crisis Center Advocate and now on the ENRICHri’s Advocacy team.

Donna is a work-from-home pet groomer and enjoys all things homesteading.

Assistant Member Advocate


Melinda Pichette Price lives in Cranston with her husband and three kids. Aside from homeschooling, she loves traveling, making things on Canva, and spending time with her two dogs.

Melinda is passionate about advocacy and keeping homeschooling in RI easy and accessible to all. She is an Assistant Member Advocate and co-founder of the Woodland Wanderers co-op.  She strongly believes that the key to homeschooling success is having a village. If you’re in need of a village, reach out! She’ll help you find one, or help you create one.
