JEST THE THING!
“A good story touches the soul and helps the spirit soar."
Judy England-McCarthy has been a professional storyteller since 2009 and workshop facilitator since the late 1990s. Her original stories are filled with elements of humor, wisdom and magically unfold to share life's truths with listeners both young and old alike. She is a member of Lehigh Valley and Patchwork guilds and a board member of NJ Storytelling Network. In 2013 Judy performed one of her original tales at the National Storytelling Conference and that same year she performed at the Bobcaygeon Summer Concert Series in Canada. With a strong background in acting, which includes studying in NYC for several years, she is a self published children’s author and is working to produce her story into a children’s animation series.
