An Appalachian Storyteller

Hettie has spent most of her life in the mountain areas of Southwest Virginia, East Kentucky and East Tennessee, a true native Appalachian who loves storytelling.  However, her stories are from  the mountains, the sea and the world.  She comes from a long line of storytellers; teachers, preachers, lawyers and insurance agents- all making their living with their passion for a good “yarn”.  Over 15 years Ago, Hettie began storytelling in schools, churches and festivals  with focus on entertaining and igniting passion for those listening to tell their own stories.


​“ A contagious energetic enthusiasm that transfers to the audience”

“She had audience enthralled and actively involved in the story”


“Hettie has a special talent for sharing stories appropriate for every age.”



Southwest Virginia Storyteller who began telling stories to local schools and other organizations in the area.
