2003 - 2004
Marsha Drake, owner of Your Story, has been hooked on stories since she was introduced to Alice in Wonderland at the age of five. She knows that every single one of us has a story that is just waiting to be told. Unfortunately, few people have both the time to recollect, and the ability to write their own stories. Most of us have trouble finding the time to write a letter, let alone a personal history! This where Marsha comes in. A graduate degree in English, a certificate in counselling and twenty-five years experience with people and print enable her to help you write your story. With experience ranging from Yukon camp cook to writing instructor, Marsha finds it easy to communicate with all types of personalities. People find her honest, friendly, curious, creative, respectful and a great listener.
Your Story is proving to be a resounding success! Upon graduation Marsha secured two projects that are now completed. One is the history of a well known community organization celebrating its 20th anniversary. Her newest confirmed project concerns an aspect of Vancouver history that she's not allowed to discuss! She is also concentrating on developing her network and growing her business, tasks that are turning out to be surprisingly easy for her.
Marsha would be honoured to help you write your personal or organizational history - a history that will preserve your past while inspiring the next generation's future.
