Her original show-and-tell history programs evolved into stories of items found in the museum’s collection when people in her audiences would say, “You know, my dad had one of those and I remember him telling …”

For 16 years, she coordinated the Minnesota Storytelling Festival annually in Austin, and for more than 25 years has shared regionally her personal stories and those from other cultures.
