Welcome to my little piece of the internet!! For those of you who don’t know me, allow me to introduce myself!  I’m a small-town Idaho girl living in the “big” metropolis of Boise with my family.  Let’s be honest…when I first moved here (several years prior to getting married), I was afraid of going down the one-way roads the wrong way, and I didn’t know how to handle so much traffic!  I can’t imagine what my young self would think of the traffic here now!  Haha!

I’m the mother of two children – Ella (6) and Lucas (4), and the wife to an amazing hubby, Roger.  Prior to becoming an Usborne Books & More (UBAM) consultant, I worked full time at a public accounting firm for almost 11 years!  And then, the babies came and I switched from “working for the man,” to working for myself! Of course, the rest is history; I went to a UBAM party, fell in love with the books, decided to host a party…and joined instead!

Want in on a little secret!?  I have not always been a book lover.  Yep, it’s true.  I pretty much read what I “needed” to read to get through school, but it wasn’t something that I absolutely loved doing.  In fact, it was quite the opposite.  I would’ve rather be outside playing, practicing dance routines, or hanging out with friends over reading.

Once I was expecting my first child, I knew that I needed my kids to have a huge love of books!  Just like any other parent, I want my children to be successful and have opportunities that I maybe didn’t have…and I know that giving them that love of reading and learning will get them off on the right foot.

I’m excited to have the opportunity to help YOU provide the same opportunities to your children.  Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve you!!  I love knowing that just by getting books (books that they can engage in) into the hands of young children, we will be changing each of their lives for the better!
