MY STORY

Thank you for stopping by Get Busy And Read!  My name is Laura and I am an Independent Consultant with Usborne Books & More.  Based in Kansas City, Missouri, I am over the moon excited to introduce to you what I think are the most amazing children’s books in the world!  My family immediately fell in love with these books and I know your kiddos will love them too.  I would be delighted to help you build a library of quality books for your home!  I love to help get books into the hands of children!!! 

A little about me…I have lived my entire life in Missouri.  I love it!  I teach high school math in a small town not far from where I was raised.  I grew up around a lot of teachers, so it was no surprise to my family when I chose this profession.  I was invited to an Usborne Books & More faceBOOK party shortly after my first daughter was born and was drawn in by the whole concept.  I had never heard of Usborne books before that party.  (I was missing out on something wonderful!)  I absolutely loved every book I received in my first order and immediately knew I needed more. 

Not long after that, I decided to take a leap of faith and join this amazing company.  I love their mission (to promote literacy), their history (they’ve been going strong since 1989), their financial stability (EDC, their parent company, is a publicly traded company, with an amazing sales record), and the opportunity to run my small business however I see fit. 

In addition to my book business and teaching, I also keep the books for my husband’s small electrical company.  I LOVE being a mommy to two beautiful daughters – Elizabeth Grace (2) and Kathryn (6 months).  My husband, Jacob, and I love spending time outdoors.  We love camping, hiking, exploring, and traveling with our small family.
