Sonlight's Founders

Sonlight's Story

John and Sarita Holzmann began Sonlight Curriculum in 1990. Sarita had planned to pick orders while her youngest son napped.

He was never much of a napper, and the orders soon increased far more than she had anticipated.

Life: it's never quite what you expect. But this unexpected blessing has been part of their lives for over a quarter century.

The Holzmanns have four adult children, in the nicely ordered sequence girl, boy, girl, boy. The three older children all work at Sonlight.

Amy has been involved with Product Development, and some Marketing, for fifteen years. She evaluates books, writes new programs, and writes emails.

Luke has produced all the Avyx DVDs (such as the Science DVDs, the Mathtacular DVDs), and now works primarily in Marketing, bringing enthusiasm, passion, and clear thinking.

Jonelle serves as the Creative Director, head of both Product Development and Marketing, bringing her skills as project manager and servant leader to offer customers the best, most clear experience possible.

(Justin, the youngest, also offers occasional input, when he isn't busy with his career.)

All eight grandchildren are homeschooled using Sonlight.
