This is Kim’s fourth appearance at Brandywine. A commanding presence with a beautiful singing voice and impeccable comedic timing, Kim’s perfectly-woven, heartwarming stories can quickly careen off into the tremulously touching...or the hilariously outrageous.

Although she has used stories extensively in her work for over 15 years, Kim is relatively new to the storytelling stage. In just a short time she has  built an impressive performance list including the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival in Orem, Utah, the Exchange Stage in Jonesborough TN, the historic Lyric Theater in Virginia, the Northeast Storytelling Festival, the Storytelling Festival of the Carolinas, The Smoky Mountains Festival in Pigeon Forge TN, The Colonial Williamsburg Storytelling Festival and many others. She has been a Featured Teller at the National Storytelling Festival. She also holds residencies at the Montgomery County Museum, the JuneBug Center for Storied Arts and the Lewis Miller Art Center

The Virginia Storytelling Alliance is currently blessed to have Kim serve as president,and she is the Virginia State rep for the National Youth Storytelling Showcase. She is also a commissioned performer for the Virginia Commission of the Arts.

Kim has written and performed vignettes and stories for the PAR-FM Radio Network morning show which has a three-state listening audience. She has penned numerous children’s stories but is most noted for her original and humorous Pitscreek Series, which has resulted in two CD projects.

Kim is the founder of the Wrinkles Project, a nationwide program that helps raise awareness of the treasure we have within our 'seasoned citizens' and the stories that they have to share.

Kim is extremely prolific, and has introduced new CDs almost yearly. Not long ago she gave us ’Penny Candy Love,’ a smooth melding of homespun humor and  quick wit wrapped up in soulful voice. And practically just a few minutes ago, Kim launched ‘Pickle in the Middle Blues," a rare treat that can be equally shared by kids of all ages and their parents. A delightful combination of great storytelling and solid blues music.

The Lower Brandywine Storytelling Festival is the anchor event in Lower Brandywine Presbyterian Church's Community Outreach Calendar of Events. It's fun. It's Family-friendly. And it's FREE! So forward this web address to your family, friends, neighbors and associates. But encourage them  to register today, because space is limited.
