Bringing History

                        to life...

Newest Programs

imagine having a talk with someone from the past ...


Imagine having a conversation with a celebrated First Lady, a survivor of the Titanic disaster, or an aviation pioneer. Or delving deep into the story of a renowned department store or legendary film.

I give voice to stories from the past. As entertaining as they are educational, these programs bring history alive in a fun, inspiring and educational way.

It's my life's work to bring memorable women from the past alive and to tell historical stories so that lessons from the past are more meaningful and powerful.
