"Betsy is a delightful and professional storyteller. She holds the attention of the children and adults as well. Through her captivating storytelling she empowers children to grow and learn in a most enjoyable way."

- Sister Margaret M. Caire, RSCJ Headmistress
Academy of the Sacred Heart

     Formally trained in theatre and early childhood education, Betsy has created rich entertainment and learning experiences for children in their homes and in the classroom over many years. Through storytelling, a group activity, Betsy combines her flair for creative dramatics with illustrative character lessons or morals, to create an exciting, fun environment for young children, one in which they feel safe and supported in exploring and growing their unique creative talents.

     Children enter into Betsy’s Story Time Fantasies to see, feel, touch and smell the characters in her make-believe world. Through costumes, masks and face paint, she makes the stories come alive!
