Meet Chris Kirkhope

Hello there! I'm Chris Kirkhope, a 37-year-old educator, entrepreneur, and family man living in beautiful Mount Vernon, Ohio. Let me give you a glimpse into my multifaceted life.

Family Comes First

First and foremost, I'm proud to be married to the incredible Kori Kirkhope, a dedicated Nurse Practitioner who plays a vital role in our local healthcare community. Together, we're navigating the wonderful journey of parenthood with our energetic three-year-old son, Jaxon. Our family is the cornerstone of my life, and every adventure we embark on is a cherished memory in the making.

A Journey of Education

My educational path has taken me to diverse places and fields of study. I started my academic journey at the University of Hawaii, immersing myself in a world of culture and learning. Later, I continued my studies at Mount Vernon Nazarene University, where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Business with concentrations in Marketing, Communications, and Finance. My thirst for knowledge didn't stop there; I pursued a Master's in Special Education to equip myself with the tools to make a meaningful impact in the lives of students.

Teacher by Day, Entrepreneur by Night

Since 2016, I've had the privilege of teaching in Knox County, Ohio. My teaching style is rooted in real-world experiences, featuring guest presentations from community leaders and a focus on critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, and professional communication. Education is not just my profession; it's my passion.

In parallel to my teaching career, I've been nurturing my entrepreneurial spirit. I founded my own marketing company in 2016, where I offer a wide range of services. From creating websites and designing eye-catching graphics to curating engaging social media content, managing SEO accounts, producing promotional products, and providing custom and corporate apparel, I thrive on bringing creative ideas to life.

Balancing Work and Play

Outside of work and business endeavors, you'll often find my family and me embarking on exciting adventures. We're avid travelers, especially drawn to the soothing shores of beach destinations. Golf is another shared family passion that we enjoy whenever we can. And for those moments when we seek solitude and connection with nature, our remote cabin in Canada provides the perfect escape.

Join Me on This Journey

I invite you to explore my world of education, creativity, and family through this website. Whether you're a fellow educator looking for inspiration, a business owner seeking marketing solutions, or simply someone interested in our adventures, I'm thrilled to have you here. Feel free to connect with me, share your thoughts, or embark on this journey together.

Thank you for visiting, and let's make learning and creating a way of life!

Sincerely, Chris Kirkhope
