She can put anyone at ease, talking to them, or convincing them to tell their own story. She has a way with words and a demeanor that makes everyone listen to every word she says, and gets everyone wondering WHAT SHE'S GOING TO SAY NEXT! A beautiful person with a beautiful soul, and a lot to offer any group. Every time I book her for an event here, I book another one as soon as the event is over.

What to Expect
I have 2 tracks available entertainment and educational. In educational I try to match my program to the theme or common core requirements by grade level. I inspire students to listen and write, to look further for stories on things that interest them. I do workshops with students as well to help them develop their story and subsequent writing skills.
My second track is entertainment. I have a broad variety of programs or I will do a pot-luck, choosing a variety from several themes.
