    “Your presence here over S’lichot was such a blessing to all of us. [The storytelling] truly set the tone not only for the evening, but for our ongoing learning about belonging, believing and becoming. Thank you once again for your special spirit that you brought to that evening.” -Rabbi Stephen Hart, Temple Chai in Long Grove, IL

    "Thank you for your stories... You are a very passionate and gifted storyteller. I was moved, intrigued, and inspired by the folklore and how you weaved the story together. Each one resonates truth.” - Eric J Jones. Sr.
