Rep Spotlight : Stasia Theiss Skelton

This month, I have the pleasure of introducing you to our Statesboro, Georgia rep, Stasia Theiss Skelton!

Stasia and her husband Andrew have been married since January 10, 2009. They met in Athens, Georgia and lived in Augusta for a year and a half before moving to New Orleans for three years while her husband went to seminary and she taught elementary school.

Their daughter, Bailey Drew, was born March 23, 2013.  They now reside in Statesboro where she is a part-time preschool teacher and her husband is a campus minister. They are moving again very soon! They are frugal and strive to be faithful in all that God has given them. Stasia also has a blog, Our Life on a Budget, so be sure to check in there to follow their journey! 

 Now that you know a little more about Stasia and her beautiful family, it's time for a little Q&A!

Who introduced you to cloth diapering? 

{That is a great question… and honestly, I am not really sure. I am pretty frugal (thus the name of the previously mentioned blog) so I think it has always floated around in the back of my mind. When we got pregnant I started researching like crazy. Eventually I met with Nicole (another eLeMeNO-Pee representative) and she helped get me set up!}

What was the first diaper you purchased? 

{Bum Genius 4.0… and I am still in love :)!}

What led you to eLeMeNO-Pee? 

{I had done a lot of research, but still wanted some hands on advice. I was taking a Bradley Method class and got Nicole's card in my binder. Then I set up an appointment, bought my diapers, had a great experience. I knew one day I wanted to work for this company!}
                                                                     


 

Which of our diaper brands is your favorite?

{I still love Bum Genius. I have a pretty big baby (9 lbs 9 oz at birth…). They have fit her well from day one… I find that some of the other things I have tried squeeze her cute little rolls a little too much!}




What do you love about being a cloth diaper rep? 

{When a client says, "Wow, this seems easier than I expected!" I wish I could get everyone to realize how easy cloth diapering is and not be so scared of it! :)}

Do you have any exciting plans for this summer with your family?

{We have been on quite an adventure this summer. We have been to Atlanta, Augusta, Hilton Head, Ohio (I would tell you the city but you probably haven't heard of it), Annapolis and Washington D.C. 

We are also moving this summer… we are not sure where yet, the hubs is still in process interviewing, but we hope to move in a month!}

If you could give one important piece of advice to a family considering making the switch to cloth diapers, what would it be?

{Meet with someone who already cloth diapers, and I would recommend a representative. Why, you ask? One, you actually get your hands on the diapers. Two, you see how easy it is. Last, but certainly not least- you have a built in support, someone to ask questions, someone that will support you, troubleshoot with you and celebrate with you!}
 
What is something most people would be surprised to learn about you?
{I am an extreme morning person (think 3:30 AM and the like) and have been since high school.  I used to try to deny it and now I just embrace it:).}
