Who is this woman behind the bandana?
Some people do art.
Some people do sports.
Some people do kickboxing.
I do words.
I am a storyteller, speaker, reader, workshop leader, (sometimes) poet, novelist (in progress), and a generally joyful wordsmith. I also hike as often as possible.
I live with my family in beautiful Northwest Montana and work to send out stories and words that create connections. I have a B.A. and M.A. in English literature, 3 kids, 1 husband, 2 dogs, and 15 chickens. I have lost count of how many books. . but I think it is just shy of enough.
I lead storytelling workshops all over the beautiful state of Montana and have been a keynote speaker at conferences, camps, and retreats. Storytelling is everywhere. My goal is to craft story experiences that help people see their own stories in the stories of others, both in the world of folklore and the world right in front of us. That process enhances our capacity to think, read, and be humans with empathy and compassion.
Look around, learn about my work through my blog, the podcast, and reviews. Then, let's connect and tell some stories together.
I'll bring the bandanas.
