In 2014 I visited the National Storytelling Festival, and from then on I was hooked on the craft of storytelling. I finished my degree in Fine Arts & Communication from Bob Jones University in 2015, and participated in every storytelling event I could get my hands on - local festivals, guild meetings, you name it. So many opportunities are available in the Upstate of South Carolina, and I have loved participating in so many of them.
After adding so many gigs to my repertoire, I decided to pursue my degree in Education. So, in 2019 I returned to school for a Bachelor of Science in Education. In May 2021 I finished my degree - majoring in Composite Social Studies Education. I now work for Greenville County Schools.
So, while storytelling opportunities are limited to the weekend, the summer, and online meets, I look forward greatly to many great years ahead.
