Meet Margaret

Who is Margaret Murphy?

I am passionate about people and their stories -­‐ and helping others find their storytelling voice. Why? Because, for me, sharing story is one of the most important tools for healing and connecting. I believe that remembering and telling our stories strengthens us as individuals and builds community. I am happiest working with one or a thousand-­‐and-­‐one sharing ideas and stories.
