Amy Shephard
Production Manager and Co-founder

 

Amy has loved Storytelling for as long as she can remember.  She spent most of her college and young adult life listening to story telling podcasts and wishing that she could start a Story Slam event in Olympia.  So that's just what she did with the help of co-founder Elizabeth Lord.  She received her Bachelors in Liberal Arts with a focus in performance from The Evergreen State College in Olympia in 2009. During 2011-2012 Amy attended graduate school in England at the University of Exeter and graduated with honors receiving a Masters degree in Applied Drama.  Amy loves working in theatre that encourages community development and educational enrichment. She spends her free time hiking and researching whales.
