How My Story Helps People
Storytelling has been known to have significant impacts on not only the one sharing their story, but it also breaks down barriers and creates a vast amount of connection.

Initial recordings were created with roughly 45 chapters that span and length of 15 hours of unedited and hyper-raw material. This material is meant to be listened to in it’s raw and authentic form, similar to a podcast. You hear me laugh, cry, and can almost hear me smile. I started the initial process of working with a ghostwriter/editor. Fern believes that once these audio clips are transformed into a written memoir they have the ability to touch even more peoples hearts and lives. This memoir would then be put in a published book form, e-book, and audiobook narrated by myself. A workbook will accompany the book/e-book/audiobook encourage journaling of initial thoughts and ah-ha moments while outlining key concepts. The workbook will be structured for individual reflection, one-on-one, or group work.
