TESTIMONIALS (FEEL THE LOVE)
“I needed to find a way to be brought up to speed quickly on the theory underpinning this process, and the practical details involved in conducting it well. I feel incredibly lucky to have found Jennifer, as the framework she draws upon to conduct this work is very well aligned with my own interests and philosophies, and her approach to training people as ‘story seekers’ provided exactly the right amount of big picture and detailed discussion to ensure I could feel well briefed, but also remain fully aware of the many complexities and issues I need to consider further in any future story seeking activities I may become involved with in the future.”    (Social Researcher, 2016) 
“I found it informative and thought provoking. I have been to digital storytelling workshops in the past, however I believe your innovative approach to ‘safe and purposeful’ story seeking is the ‘missing link’ I’ve been searching for. The toolkit you provide will help me collect stories of Veterans in a safe and purposeful way (for both them and I). Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience – and for being supportive and encouraging. I’ll be highly recommending your training to others.”(Community Member, 2016)
