About MeVisit my Marketplace here!
I began promoting Barefoot Books in 2005 because I wanted to share an undiscovered treasure with others. I believe strongly that there are few things more important than sharing the joy of reading with a child. Children who grow up with a love of books and storytelling are more engaged in the world, do better in school, and forge stronger bonds with the people around them.
I work full time outside the home and also own a licensed business in Arizona under the registered trade name Barefoot Books Tucson. I have a M.A. in archaeology and a graduate certificate in museum studies. My two children are my "test audience" for all Barefoot Books. I find that you cannot truly evaluate a children's book without reading it aloud.
I am currently mentoring a group of Barefoot Books Ambassadors from all over North America. I offer help on an as-needed basis, and consider it a privilege to work for them. Conducting research and summarizing information come naturally to me, and I like knowing that others can benefit from my experience. It is very important to me that my team members conduct business professionally and ethically, and I encourage setting realistic goals for long-term success. I maintain a Team Website where I provide files, photos, ideas, and tips for promoting Barefoot Books and running a small business. We also have a team Facebook Page for sharing news and ideas on an almost daily basis. Everyone in my downline receives the same level of assistance from me; if you are looking for a team leader closer to you, please ask me for recommendations.
Barefoot Books is important to my family, and I'm honored to be a part of such a wonderful and unique company. I believe that high quality children's books should be affordable and readily available to all families and educators. If you have any questions, please contact me.
