"Since early childhood I’ve been fascinated by listening to my parents and grandparents share their stories. I can remember sitting at the feet of my grandmother many times and asking her to repeat my favorite stories about her life. These stories always included some crossroads or serious dilemma looming in the background. I felt that her stories gave me another glimpse into the real woman my grandmother was and not just this older woman in front of me who’d grown tired and weary. She passed away before I was 12 years old and I can still vividly recall these moments of sitting with her and listening intently as she shared her stories.
As I grew into adulthood it was natural for me to draw out stories from strangers who would often tell me “I’ve never told anyone that before”. My passion and interest in listening to people share their story has continued through the years. In 2002 I began conducting 'Story' group workshops and coaching individuals in various aspects of Theme & Story.
