From an early age, Mary’s mother taught her to “look for the best word.”  Playing with language was a game at the dinner table.  And so, not “just a storyteller” Mary also writes – essays, speeches, plays, and more.  She has taught workshops on “Making Sense of a Story,” “From the Page to the Stage,” and “Round the Kitchen Table ~ how to collect and keep your family stories.”

Mary is also available to help individuals write or shape their own presentations.
