I’ve always loved stories – hearing them, writing them and telling them. I began my journey as a professional storyteller by visiting Head Start centers in Southern Appalachia. Since then, I’ve shared stories in over 100 libraries and schools in the Southeast, as well as the St. Louis Storytelling Festival, Tale Spin Festival in Tennessee, and lots of wonderful places in between.
With over fifteen years’ experience as a performer and educator, I bring a unique blend of words, rhythm, song, and movement to story audiences. In addition, through workshops, I bring useful story techniques and materials to teachers, librarians/media specialists, and organizations.
