Educational Sales Associate
Greater New York City Area
Verónica Labarca is the Educational Sales Associate at Lee & Low Books, Inc., the largest independent children’s book publisher specializing in diversity and multiculturalism in the United States. Born and raised in Chile, she is a bilingual Elementary and Middle School teacher whose passion for inclusion brought her to New York City to join GiGi’s Playhouse NYC, advocating for the Down syndrome community. Teaching in both Chile and NYC let her realize the mandatory need for positive representations of all backgrounds in classrooms, and now she shares Lee & Low Books’ educational resources across the country so that all children can feel represented in literature.
