Susan became a storyteller in 1997. She is a member of the Florida Storytelling Association. In 2003-2004, she was the secretary of the Florida Storytelling Association. In 2002, Susan studied under Doug Lipman, a National Storytelling Coach, and applied those teachings in her workshops and online coaching for families. In July 2008, she traveled to Gatlinburg, TN, to participate in the National Storytelling Workshop “Storytelling in Organizations.”
Susan has also been using “The Artist Way” by Julia Cameron with much success.
Susan loves to coach students from grades 1-12 for the Florida Storytelling Association’s Youthful Voices competition. Each year, students who apply and turn in their submissions are chosen from all over the State of Florida to stand on the stage at the Storytelling Festival in Mt. Dora, Florida, and tell their story to an audience of approximately 250 persons in the Storytelling Concert Tent, and anyone listening online. Listeners must register for admission tickets. See their website at https://flstory.com/ to purchase tickets.
Her future goals are to continue developing her story collections, film “Black Cat Miracle,” a short film, and produce audio for radio listeners.
