Creating Ripples ... Making Waves
Storytelling Concert About Transformation:
I began my storytelling experience in the Fall of 2006. I am a native Texan and grew up in a small town outside of Houston. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Charles, for ten years. We have one son, Reilly, and one daughter, Raquel who keep us on our toes and laughing. I am the oldest of four children and we all still live pretty close to home. Right now I am the librarian for Armstrong Elementary in Conroe ISD and I absolutely love every minute.
M.S. Candidate in Library and Information
I first fell in love with storytelling at
the Texas Library Association Conference in 2006. While I have
performed practically my entire life as a dancer, I have never
been prone to public speaking. However, seeing the storytellers
in action at TLA truly inspired me and I joined Dr. Elizabeth
Figaís storytelling class at the University of North Texas.
Through this class I found storytelling to be a fulfilling and
rewarding experience and decided to continue my studies by
taking advanced storytelling.
I love to do anything that involves creativity. I have been
dancing (ballet, jazz, modern) since I was young, but am
currently on a sabbatical since moving to my new occupation. I
was a high school dance team director for nine years, which
offered many fulfilling and happy memories.
