About Me:

Storytelling has been, and still is, at the core of what I do.

My first spoken word gig was at Calvin Coolidge School in Lansing, Illinois.

I was in 4th grade.

In the meantime, I earned a B.A. in Speech & Theatre Education (Purdue) and a Master's in Oral Interpretation of Literature (Northwestern).

I taught high school in Illinois, spent two years in PR, worked 10 years for Lexis/Nexis, married Rick Beyer with whom I raised two great and talented kids, had my dream job at WUMB-FM in Boston, enjoyed 10 years as PR director at Perkins School for the Blind, and have been teaching college-level communications courses in Boston and Chicago.

I write and perform poetry and have had some of it published. Here's a sample from an anthology called We Will Not Be Silenced.

Since 2014,I've joined my history author/filmmaker husband Rick Beyer in leading Ghost Army tours of Europe with Stephen Ambrose Historical Tours.

A voice and video actor since 1991, I just began recording audiobooks. ACX here.
