Our teachers, staff, and board members have a passion for life, learning, children, the Kingdom of God, family, books, nature, music, relationships, truth, and beauty.
Mrs. Lilholt, along with her husband David, and their three teenagers, moved to the Ocala area in 2006. In July 2015, after 26 years of serving, Emmy retired her position as a Children's Pastor and joined Ambleside's administration team. She continues to serve in ministry within our community as well as traveling with her Fireflies Coaching Network over her weekends.
Ms. Cochrane was first introduced to Charlotte Mason while researching homeschool methods for her three children. Charlotte Mason's ideas and philosophy of education immediately resonated with her as truth. After several years of homeschooling with this method, her two youngest children began attending Ambleside. Ms. Cochrane is grateful that she has the privilege of participating in meaningful work and serving in such a great community. She enjoys nature, being with her family and discovering more fully who God created her to be. She also has a strong desire for people to understand the finished work of Christ on the cross and God's unfathomable love for them.
