Professional performer for 40 years, Yvonne Healy was born across the water.  She grew up on an American Main Street with Irish language, stories and culture.  The inherited gene for adventure led Healy to graduate from Swarthmore College, spend half-a-life acting in New York’s soap operas and theaters, summer in yoga ashrams, and always to tell stories. These days, Healy incarnates ‘Midwest Nice’ with longtime husband, 2 teenage daughters, and 2 fluffy dogs on a Michigan lakeshore.

Yvonne has served on Board of Directors, Conference Program Chair, and producer for the National Storytelling Network, Northlands Storytelling Network, Detroit Story League Festival, Midwest StoryFest, and the Ann Arbor Storytellers Guild
