I grew up on a dairy farm in North Carolina in a whole family of storytellers. After twenty-eight years as a library administrator and consultant, for the past ten years I been sharing stories with audiences of all ages. From traditional folktales to bilingual English/Spanish stories to original tales and legends- I strive to take audiences on an animated and high energy ride! My series of family stories are meant to make you laugh with joy or tug at your heart strings and everything between.
As a storyteller I believe strongly in the rich oral tradition of storytelling and the joy and mindfulness it brings to us all. I have performed in schools, libraries, museums, and at festivals throughout the southeast and in Canada and Mexico.
