always-writing-for-you.jpg

Always Writing 4 U is my brain child. I wanted competitive acting students from all over the country to have access to tell the stories that were on their heart to tell in the moment that they wanted to tell them. My consultants and I pride ourselves on telling dynamic stories that connect with the audience and with the heart.

Please visit my website to see our success as well as watch videos of students performing our stories.

As a lifelong educator I wanted to continue making a difference and working with businesses, non profit organizations and educational institutions in the area of DEI. Working with schools, students, organizations large and small in this work is necessary and challenging. Facilitating courageous conversations in safe spaces is a skill that I enjoy sharing with others.
