eLeMeNO-Pee Rep Spotlight : Jill Crawford!

This week, I have the pleasure of introducing you to one of our most experienced reps, Jill Crawford from Kinder, Lousiana! 

Jill is 31 years old and she has been married to her high school sweetheart for 10 years. Together, they have three beautiful children; Jackson (5), James (2), and Harper-Beth (7 months).  Jill works for the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana and has been an eLeMeNO-Pee rep for the past 5 years!





On to a little Q&A to acquaint you with Jill a little further : 

Who introduced you to cloth diapering? --I was introduced to cloth by Laura Broussard, who is a former eLeMeNO-Pee rep and now the social media director for GroVia.  We were having a play date with our boys and she made cloth diapering look so easy that I made my first purchase that day.

What was your first cloth diaper? -- We started our cloth diapering journey with a Drybees overnight diaper.  I started at night so that I would be comfortable with cloth diapering before I asked my daycare to get on board.  My daycare was hesitant at first but after reading an article in the American Press about cloth diapering they welcomed them with open arms.

What led you to eLeMeNO-Pee? --I decided to become an eLeMeNO-Pee rep because I knew that I could inspire more families to use cloth.  I’m in love with cloth diapers and I want everyone to at least try them out.  I know that they aren’t for every family but trying something new never hurt anyone.

Describe one of your most rewarding client experiences. --I’ve had many rewarding experiences as an eLeMeNO-Pee rep but the most rewarding was when I got to help a needy family save money by switching to cloth.  They can now better provide for the needs of their child because they aren’t worrying where diaper money is going to come from.

What has being an eLeMeNO-Pee rep done for you and your family? --Being an eLeMeNO-Pee rep has allowed my family to have extra funds to move to a greener lifestyle.  eLeMeNO-Pee has also introduced my family to products and other people that have made us healthier and have opened our eyes to an interesting new lifestyle that revolves around a protecting the earth and all who live on it.

Since you're a working mom, tell us about your experiences with cloth and daycare. Are you excited about the new school year starting up or do you wish summer break would last a little longer? --I’m super excited that summer is coming to a close because we have several new journeys ahead of us.  My oldest will be attending Kindergarten this year and is excited to learn and we now have a fabulous nanny who is caring for our younger 2 children.

What is one of your favorite quotes? --My favorite quotes are from Mother Teresa.  “God has not called me to be successful.  He called me to be faithful” and “ I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love”.  I try to live my life by these quotes.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? --If I could learn to do anything I would want to learn to garden so that I could grow organic produce for my family.

When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time? --With 3 small children I hardly ever have 30 minutes of free time but when I do I love to relax with a good book.
