She is a champion liar many times over and – no lie – holds a Masters in Storytelling from East Tennessee State University. She leads skill building workshops on story crafting and performance.

Ingrid is an excellent teller ... She is funny, elegant, handles personal experience stories with a lot of humor, as well as pathos, and makes folktales quirky and relevant to modern lifetime situations.

DELICIOUS, Ingrid. DELICIOUS!!

Great techniques that I can use to freshen up my 'tried and true' stories, and use to generate my own versions with new material.
