My Occupation Personal Historian, Organization Communications
My Bio I've been writing, designing, and producing marketing and employee communications for a wide variety of organizations since 1990. A graduate of Belmont University, in Nashville, Tennessee, I currently split my time between Stratford-upon-Avon, England, and middle Tennessee. Living abroad since 2000, I've helped American expat organizations such as the American Association of Singapore and the Zurich American Women's Club develop stories and explore cultural diversity. I love volunteering at the Royal Shakespeare Company, a nod to the most revered storyteller ever. I developed my passion for personal and family history after researching my own bloodlines which led to living relatives in England as well as discovering I am 16 generations removed from a Mayflower Pilgrim. I plan to launch a micro biz to help others share their stories. Curiosity and a deep respect for the human condition are key to my work.
