North Carolina Storyteller Profile


Name:Kirk, Dorothy
Company Name:
Telephone:(828) 859-9528

Bio:Two years ago, I retired after a forty-five year career as a systems analyst, information technology consultant, project/program manager, and teacher. My teaching experience taught me that I had a gift for storytelling and performance. Teaching is, at its best, a performance art. I taught both English at a college level and project management to business professionals. I made the concepts come alive and kept the students engaged through my storytelling. I used stories to illustrate project management concepts, like risk management. Through my students’ feedback and the comments of my peers, I realized I had a gift and I developed a strong desire to pursue that gift.
