Returning home to small-town Indiana, a young woman finds work caring for an unlikely (and challenging) patient. 

Stephanie Summerville is a New York-based actress, speaker and storyteller, most known for work with the Moth, a live storytelling events organization, and The Moth Radio Hour on National Public Radio.

Stephanie will be a featured Keynote speaker at the upcoming International Short Break Conference (ISBA) being held virtually June 22-25, 2021.

Most recently, her stories have been featured in The Huffington Post UK edition, and on the BBC Radio Program Outlook.

When not circling the globe on cruise ships as a speaker and performer, she lives as a nomad, declaring home to be “wherever I hang my hat.”
