Professional Storyteller is a network for people who work in the field of oral storytelling. Please write a brief paragraph about your work.
As a performer, I weave unique characters, song and improvisation into personal and folktales for all ages. My stories explore the heart and humor of the human condition. My focus is on sharing personal and folktales that entertain while promoting attitudes of kindness, compassion, and understanding of those we think of as different than ourselves - and using stories to teach basic skills such as pausing and breathing to be non-reactive in situations in fun participatory ways. As an educator, I use storytelling and improv games to teach basic mindfulness skills to children and seniors. I am a Certified TimeSlips Storytelling Facilitator and use this model to work with dementia patients and people in 12-Step recovery. I do storytelling workshops for community members wanting to tell their stories at community storytelling venues and for people wanting to use storytelling for personal healing.
