Jeanne was my middle name before I decided to replace it with a former last name to avoid losing roughly 30 years of storytelling experience. There aren't many of us here in the U.S.!
I noticed your use of the past tense when talking about telling stories. Certainly hope you still get to do it. This is a great place to network with other storytellers from all over the world...even Omaha. Putting Omaha in the search box in the upper right shows 3 members here. If you don't already know them, you might try sending them messages and maybe establish networking right in your own town.
Whatever you do, I hope you find your time here to be both enjoyable and maybe even useful in your storytelling life.
