I believe that everyone’s life is a story worth telling. I help you tell yours in a way that honors and encourages you today and creates a legacy that inspires others for generations.
From birth, I was destined for a path of listening to and preserving stories. For as far back as I can remember, I sat at the feet of wise and witty elders. My parents revealed my path to me in different ways. My mother often took me to the nursing home where she worked, and I’d toddle into the rooms and wait for people to tell me stories. I heard some doozies!
My father taught me by example that showing genuine curiosity in others got them talking about the things that mattered most to them. He may have had only an elementary education, but Dad understood our universal need to be heard and accepted. Everyone adored him for his genuine friendship.
I love to see the light go on inside a person when they share their story out loud, or hold their memoir book in their hands for the first time.
I call this experience memoir magic and I am privileged to see it all the time.
