What's a professional storyteller?

I am a communications professional who approaches the work as a storyteller.

I’ve always loved words. They paint pictures and landscapes. Words evoke emotion and showcase impact.

The right words can bring people through the door. Words change lives.

As a storyteller, I help my clients explain what they do, who they help and how they make a difference. I also teach workshops that help people get better at writing and telling their stories. 

Storytelling is an age-old process that’s fun and invigorating. There’s tremendous power in our stories. If you need help telling yours, let’s talk!

What's the value of working with a storyteller?

Everyone has a story, and everyone can be a storyteller. Sometimes, it just takes someone else pointing out the story (and sometimes writing it). 

Organizations and businesses have stories too – more than they can count.

As a storyteller, I work mostly with nonprofits and Christian ministries, small and large businesses. I identify great stories and help tell them.

My style involves both right-brained creativity (writing the content and brainstorming ideas) as well as left-brained organization. (I’m known for strong project management skills and strategy.)

Here are the types of projects I typically take on:

How is “Storyteller” the same or different from “Communications Professional” or “Consultant”?

I’m a trained and experienced communications professional who has worked alongside heavy-hitting brands and collaborated on out-of-this-world projects.

I’ve worked in advertising, public relations, nonprofit communications and small business marketing. As an employee on staff, and also as a freelancer or entrepreneur, I understand the dynamics of teams.

What I’m doing now is often referred to as “freelance communications work” or “communications consulting.”

But “storyteller” fits my approach best. In all of my projects, I want to elevate the power of a story to achieve goals.
