She completely credits TC for making her, husband Julio and their sons a family.
Susan Holloway, Workshop Coordinator
Susan, Bakersfield, CA, is the proud mother of 23-year old triplets who have practically grown up at TC's conventions since Mom has brought them to thirteen annual gatherings. All the children are now in college. She has the challenging task of creating, organizing and selecting experienced facilitators for the convention's workshop series. Susan is very busy keeping up with her three, whether it be at her sons' golf tournaments or NASCAR races, traveling and shopping with her daughter, working during the winter months at the family ski resort, or cheering her husband's High School baseball games. Susan is always on the go and she would not have it any other way. Her triplets were born 5-1/2 weeks early, but have turned out to be healthy, happy and very active.

Phyllis, Kirtland, OH, is the mother of seven children, including her youngest who are quadruplets (2 girls, 2 boys), now age 25. She is the lone quad mom on the committee.

Judy, Pottstown, PA, is mom to 18 year-old triplets. Her multiples were delivered at 33 weeks due to pre-eclampsia. Judy says that they make every convention a family vacation, having attended their first event in Hershey, Pennsylvania when the kids were just 2-1/2 years old. She lends her professional expertise in finance to budgeting, check writing and record keeping for the TC convention. "I have learned to be much better at time management," she explains, "But scheduling the kids is becoming a full time job!"
