Bio:As a professional storyteller at Grandma Honey Storytelling Hour, LLC , we take pride in offering the best stories in different styles, genres, and culturals. We are dedicated to serving the needs of our customers each and every day especially children.

I am a mother, wife, and former second grade school teacher. I have been telling stories for over twenty years. I just decided to go abroad to share my tales with others. I am a published author. My book is called "Grandma Honey Story Hour"

Education:
I graduated from: Rowan Cabarrus Community College, A.A.S. in Early Childhood Education,Shaw University, BA in Sociology, M.Ed. Education/Instructional design, American InterContinental University, and a ED.D. in Educational Leadership from Argosy University.

Profession:
I am the president of the Women and Men of Power Fellowship, president of the V.A. Community Watch in our neighborhood, a member of the Rowan Literacy Council, American Association of University Women (AAUW), National Association of Black Storytellers, National Network of Storytellers,CEO of Big Ma Ma's Community Outreach, motivational speaker and professional storyteller.

It all started at my daughter's kindergarten class, and took off from there. I have told stories in many schools, daycare centers and adult living centers throughout Salisbury and afar; the Jackie Torrence storytelling festival and for the National Association of Black Storytellers.

Telling stories is my way of giving back to my ancestors what they provided for me. I love helping children learn through storytelling. Children learn at different stages and so to me storytelling is the best way to get children to learn in a fun yet logical way.
