Our Story

My story was lost. I was a tangled mess of stories everyone else wanted to write for me. I was a chameleon that never got a break. I was exhausted and desperate to find my own joy and purpose. I started reading memoirs and felt less adrift. And as any good nerd, also began researching the power of stories. I realized that narrative spanned every academic discipline: communication, psychology, neuroscience, medicine, leadership. I felt like I was coming home. At the same time I was wresting control of my story from those around me, I was seeing the power of story to change individual and collective lives. So, I dedicated myself to being a Story Champion: Champion over my own story and Champion to the world over the power of stories to change our lives and our world.
