Stacie Brown McCullough
Stacie Brown McCullough serves as GHF® Periodicals Board Director and Managing Editor. She is a GHF® Writer and published author of multiple essays and articles, introverted gifted adult, secular homeschooling mom, a psychology student, and multipotentialite. Stacie’s personal mission is to support gifted/2e children and their parents by raising awareness about issues specific to this demographic, promoting relevant educational resources, and uniting and fostering community among gifted/2e kids (and their parents).
Stacie’s publications have appeared in college textbooks and instructor manuals by Bedford’s/St. Martin’s and Cengage Learning, marketing campaigns, and blog articles. Her work has earned multiple awards and won several contests, and she has a handful of works-in-progress, including two fiction novels.
In addition to her writing pursuits, Stacie started MMc Metal Designs, LLC, with her husband in 2015. She lived an underachieving life in rural America until 2018, when she learned her oldest child is twice-exceptional. Thus, she connected a lifetime’s worth of dots and launched her own journey of self-discovery, founding a pair of gifted startups: The Secular Gifted Network (donated to GHF® in June 2020 and rebranded and reimagined as The GHF Forum) and SECTX Homeschool.
When not busy life-ing, Stacie can be found reading all the things, gardening, and guiding her own gifted/2e children toward their educational goals. She lives in small-town, Texas, with her husband, two kiddos, and a variety of critters.
