About Us

Brooke and Genevieve met, where else? IN A THEATER. Together, they have performed as sketch comedians, improvisers, storytellers and actors for the stage, television and film. They bring their love of teaching, performance and community to Improv and Storytelling For Business, in hopes that others, outside of the arts world, can benefit from the work as much as they have.
