JoAnna Johannesen ~ Storyteller
I live with my two sons, and 4 cats. Life is fresh and new and exploring classes in storytelling is relative new to me. Even though I have told a lot of my stories to others, I decided to take classes to explore a more exciting way to tell them.
I am from an extended family and helped to take care of elderly relatives at an early age. I was accustomed to hearing their stories. I loved to help my mother work on 3 family history books. Each book represented a whole generation. I love listening to personal stories. My house was full of treasures from the past lives as I came to know both of my grandfathers, a great-uncle, and a great-grandmother. Now I have added my own stories to this great treasure chest inside of my head: stories are now a part of who I am, which needs to be told.
