Yvonne Healy, Storyteller – Author – Educator
"Yvonne Healy is an Irish pixie of a performer!" She didn't merely kiss the Blarney Stone; she swallowed it. Participatory kids' tales, chilling and comic ghost stories, outrageous family lore, or thought-provoking adult fare: this diversely talented wordsmith opens windows to life, as real and touching as it gets. Funny, too! Writer, storyteller, and "gifted educator" in preschool through college and professional programs, her award-winning presentations address curriculum content expectations for grades K-12. Download free story videos and audios at www.YvonneHealy.com.
