I am a storyteller and the creator of "Petticoat Adventures," a series of costumed one-woman dramas depicting the lives of amazing American Women. I am Creative Teaching Partner of the Mass Cultural Council and a performer/Scholar for the New Hampshire Humanities Council. I portray four women: Louisa Catherine Adams, wife of John Quincy Adams (Petticoats and Politics), Rachel Revere, wife of Paul Revere (Petticoats At the Revolution), Deborah Sampson, a female soldier in the Continental Army (Petticoat Patriot), and Johanna Burgess, a seagoing wife of a merchant ship captain(Petticoats At Sea.)My passion is shining a light on the forgotten and fascinating women in American history!
