I'm Haley! Thank you for being here! I'm a left handed, redheaded, dog-loving math nerd & stepmama. I owned and operated a local tutoring company for 10 years before putting away my pencils & calculator to join the corporate world. In the midst of the Corona Virus Pandemic, I discovered Usborne Books & More and realized how much I had been missing the world of education and became an Independent Consultant in July 2020. As a former educator, turned working stepmama, who feels very passionately about providing great education and resources to all children, I knew this was the right step for me. Through this career, I am able to spread literacy and provide phenomenal learning tools to children across the country. I also have the opportunity to work with like-minded individuals who want to contribute to their household financially while maintaining a flexible schedule and filling homes one bookshelf at a time!
I have 3 ridiculous dogs, 2 beautiful stepdaughters, and 1 incredible husband with me here in Simi Valley, California. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, hand-lettering, drawing, painting, and crafting. We are a camping family, so you might catch a glimpse of me running a virtual party up in the mountains on occasion.
