About the Author
Candi Hood, MA, is a parent, author, teacher, and grant writer. She has authored over $10 million in grants and coordinated several community service projects that have changed the lives of many. Candi has degrees in Management and Organizational Development, Child Development, and Early Childhood Education, and is a Certified Dyslexia Testing Specialist. After moving to Ohio and reorganizing her life, she finally settled back in Central California to be near her family. She and Kristin now live on The Ubiquitous Farm with the two youngest of their six children and several dogs and cats. Kristin Beasley, PhD, was raised at the beach in southern California where she spent more time surfing than attending school. As an adult she completed her PhD in Clinical Psychology with specializations in Neuropsychology and Parent Infant Mental Health. She has a passion for helping others and advocating for the less fortunate and at-risk populations. After allowing her maternal instincts to lead her down the traditional path of marriage with children, cancer brought her to her knees and taught her about living authentically. Now she and Candi are building their dream project, a philanthropic, organic farm where money grows on trees, feeds the community, and supports economic development.
