Lisa grew up with humble beginnings in the sun city of El Paso, Texas. She is proud of her Latin roots and culture. She has made Southern California her home for the past 20 years with her two sons and fiance. It is important to her to travel and do book tours to be able to reach as many children, educators, parents, librarians and schools with the positive and meaningful lessons she has learned and continuous to learn. After 25 years in content writing and marketing CEO's and leaders, and turning their business into meaningful brands, Caprelli, created SKIP A STEP stories and launched UNICORN JAZZ to be able to reach children at young ages.
It is through using the best of SKIP A STEP stories and its journal in practice, that she was inspired to live a PURPOSE FILLED LIFE and create meaning and HAPPINESS out of her own life and be the catalyst to use her voice and turn them into words.
This best-selling author is proud to be the first generation to graduate from college and she graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Social Psychology. Her quest for studying human behavior and teaching is seen in her author visits, school visits, with kids, parents, educators. She believes in community outreach and volunteering and by sharing her love of literacy and reading she reaches even more kids at children's hospitals and has teamed up with Microsoft Office to do children's writing workshops year round.
UNICORN JAZZ is a story that has many lessons depending on your child's age. School librarians and educators have shared just how much their classes enjoy the messages of being unique, teaching emotional intelligence and engaging in conversations for boys and girls. "I am different and that's awesome," has been a top takeaway. Unicorn Jazz has made a mission to create and share meaningful stories that evoke communication and conversations for children whereby parents, grandparents and educators can come together to build a strong, positive global community.
Don't forget to listen to the "Unicorn Jazz Friendship Song" that goes with the children's unicorn books - available on Spotify, Itunes, YouTube and 35 music platforms! We also have a 3D File for 3D printers of Unicorn Jazz for schools.
IN HER OWN WORDS: I wrote the first book in it series, Unicorn Jazz, to help parents and teachers have important conversations with children that includes compassion, kindness, understanding and social emotional learning skills. It is important for children to realize they have a voice and the ability to reach out to others whether they are introverted, extroverted and celebrated for their own unique personality. There are children who look or feel different, who might be teased at school (like I was), want to belong, matter and develop friendships.
"Passion creates attraction. It manifests visions to accomplish the impossible!"
She enjoys writing, teaching and researching to create a culture of communication, fulfillment and happiness. This lends back to her inquisitive nature of understanding human behavior to improve personal or business relationships. She is host of the Happy Lifestyle Online Show. "Interviewing people and learning about their successes, experiences and struggles has always been fascinating to me because we have the capacity as human beings to be and do more than we ever thought possible by drawing from other people's perspectives."
