About the O’Melays

I’m Tabitha. I live in Berkeley, CA, USA with my five kids and my husband, Karl.

There we are in 2000!

Karl and I met in California, had a couple of kids, moved to Missouri to live on a farm of our own making, had a couple more kids, moved back to California, bought a house in Berkeley, and had one more kid. That bring us to the present.

We love Berkeley and feel at home here. Karl works in solar and is a passionate environmentalist and DIYer. I am a home-birthing, homeschooling, homemaking geek who loves her children. This is why, now that some are in school and even -gasp!- involved in competitive sports, I’m also one of those school moms who wears school colors and goes to as many regattas as she can.

Row, row, row your boat…
