Josie knows that she has the best job in the world. She talks to animals. And they talk back! She finds hope and inspiration in the stories of the lives of people of today and from our history. She helps people grieve and celebrate the joy in their lives. With her presentations and narratives, Josie takes her audiences on imaginative journeys to reach new insights and understanding.
She uses an engaging and interactive approach that draws her listeners into a world of imagination, teaches the love of language and literature and shows the power of words to create new insights.
Audience participation is the mainstay of Josie’s presentations!
