Kathy has been telling tales all her life and she credits her Irish ancestry for giving her
the gift of Blarney. For over fifteen years, she has devoted herself to storytelling as both a career and a passion. Kathy has performed her original stories in schools, libraries, concerts and festivals across Canada--- from Inuvik in the far north, to Halifax on the eastern coast. As an experienced performer, she presents her stories in a relaxed humorous atmosphere, building an instant rapport with listeners of all ages.
Many of Kathy’s original stories come from her own imagination and experience. When searching out folk tales, she enjoys learning stories from around the world, although she is especially drawn to those from the Emerald Isle.
Although she’s been telling stories for years, Kathy never ceases to be amazed by the power of storytelling. Adults find themselves totally captivated as the words and images of a great story unfold. Whether they reveal an age-old truth, a cautionary tale, or a rollicking adventure -- stories never cease to engage, enlighten and entertain us.
Storytelling concerts can be adapted to accommodate various types of audiences, occasions, venues and program lengths.

When I’m making a story… I close the eyes in my head, and I open the eyes in my mind, and what do I see?
