We are the Naked Crayons... Named from a conversation we had with our 4 year old who was peeling crayons at breakfast shortly after we arrived in Shanghai. We are a fun-filled, world exploring family of four. The lead Naked Crayon is Rick. He is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, Acupuncturist, and Functional Nutritionist extraordinaire! Rick completed his masters degree in TCM in the US. He has worked in wellness resorts, clinics and hospitals in Beijing, Cheng Du (China), New Zealand, Thailand, New York, and Florida, in addition to being a guest speaker and D.O.M. on luxury cruise lines around the world. Dr. Rick is sought after for his health and wellness lectures. If you want to know more about what he does, just ask! You can also visit him on our health and wellness website at www.o-w-c.org. The other lead Naked Crayon is Megan. I'm a wife, mom, school teacher, dance teacher, doula, birth educator, and health and wellness enthusiast. I love talking about all things babies and birth. I am very passionate about women and their families having the support that they need, and being educated about their options before, during and after birth. I've been a teacher for many years, both in the educational classroom and in the dance studio. I enjoy working with children and watching them learn and master new skills. I love teaching the joy of dance to others and continuing to learn myself. So many things to learn, so little time. The next Naked Crayon is Victoria. She's a very fashion minded, colorful, and feisty crayon. As a "tween" or pre-teen, she keeps us on our toes. She loves dance, music, animals, particularly dogs, dolphins and horses. She's hoping as part of our overseas experience that she can try her hand at modeling. We will see how it goes! The littlest Naked Crayon is Kai. He's a fire-y, feisty, fun-loving, friend-seeking, and excited world explorer. As a kindergarten aged little boy, the world is his oyster and he is excited to be explore it. Our crayon box is short a few of our crazy crayons that were not able to join us on this adventure. Our oldest son, Ricky and his wife Olivia are starting their own colorful adventure together in the US, and our oldest daughter, Caitlein decided to stay state-side and continue with her passion for horses. We love them bunches and bunches! And we miss them dearly. We know that we will see them soon, and maybe they will join us on the next our next adventure. Much love to all of our family and friends back home!
