Carline Crevecoeur, MD, is the author of the upcoming book Pressure Makes Diamonds, an inspiring memoir describing her journey raising and homeschooling her five children. A retired board-certified OB/GYN, Dr. Crevecoeur offers a unique perspective in her book, blending the roles of private school teacher and stay-at-home mother as she helps her kids achieve at the highest level while dealing with struggles of her own.
Dr. Crevecoeur lives in Boalsburg, Pennsylvania with her husband Michael, and her five (now college-aged) children.
"This memoir is brilliant in the way the author devised her own strategy to give her 5 children the best education available and possible. Dr Crèvecoeur is very candid in recounting her story which led her to quit her medical job to raise her kids full time and to become their classroom teacher. She gives us great insight on what made her homeschooling experience successful and the pitfalls to avoid. She also shares how she navigated the educational system to get her kids what they needed when they needed it."
"The book arrived yesterday and I read it start to finish. It is absolutely wonderful. I found it very hard to put down. The achievements, the love, the tough love, the commitment, it's all there."
