As a third grade teacher in my twenties, I told stories all the time, both true and ridiculous. And in 2011, when I left teaching for grad school and I could finally stay up late enough to see a show on a school night, I went to an evening of true, personal storytelling. I’ve been immersed in stories ever since.
For 9 years now, I’ve been telling true, personal stories nationwide. I’ve won a couple of Moth GrandSLAMs, co-founded and led The Moth’s Education Program for 6 years, wrote a dissertation about storytelling and identity (and defended it!), and I've worked with students, educators, entrepreneurs, political advocates, podcast producers, and just interesting folks to make their stories unforgettable. I’m passionate about using narrative strategies and my own expertise to engage listeners and learners in brand new ways.
I’ve got deep experience as a storyteller, one-on-one coach, educator, story editor, and qualitative researcher. I bring joy, caring and rigor to everything I work on. Get in touch if you’d like to work together!
