Thanks for your interest in the art of storytelling!

I love being a storyteller, and am always pleased when I have opportunities to share personal stories, world folktales and western history narratives. As a touring performer and workshop presenter, my work has taken me all around the country. I provide workshops and entertain audiences of all ages at schools, libraries, concerts, conferences, festivals and community events. Most recently, I’ve been telling stories to audiences in senior living communities, including people dealing with memory care issues.  


Guess what I did yesterday? I went to Apollo Middle School to find out about the Grow2BFit program here in Tucson. What a cool family program! Parents and kids learned a lot about healthy eating and then they get to do exercises together. Whew! I don’t know how everyone keeps up with Dr. Jessica Schultz who founded this fun program. She is full of pep and really excited about helping kids make healthy choices. Everyone who came got a pedometer, a jump ropes and “Chop Chop,” a fun cooking magazine for families. There were lots of door prizes, too. I didn’t get one yesterday, but I have my eye on one of the exercise videos (maybe next month when we meet again). Anyway, if you want to know more about this really great program, just check out their website:
