Carolina earned a Masters Degree in Storytelling at East Tennesee State University. Since landing in San Antonio in 2014, she has sought out and organized storytelling programs for small companies of SASA Storytellers at St. P.J.s, the San Antonio Childrens Hospital, and at the Scobee Planetarium’s Lunar Extravaganza. She has collaborated with SAY Sí (Multidisciplinary Youth Arts Program) to create a production for the Muertitos Fest 2016 and developed story programs with UNAM (Universidad Nacional de Mexico), the Instituto Cultural de Mexico, and San Antonio College. She built a relationship with the Rainbow Turkish House and facilitated bringing SASA’s annual Tellabration!™ to that site. She applied for and received DCCD funding support for a program of her own in 2015, then inspired SASA to apply in 2016.
Her repertoire embraces the myths, legends and mysteries of Central and South America from Guatemala to La Patagonia, and she has not stopped telling them since she arrived in San Antonio! She has appeared at Northside ISD Story Fest, Spooky Stories at Travis Park, Spanish and French classes at Stevens High School, and SASA’s Tellabration!. She gave the Keynote address at the 2015 UTSA Storytelling Festival. She has performed at the Texas Storytelling Festival in Denton and the National Storytelling Conference in Kansas City, MO. In 2015, she toured Costa Rica with her shows in Spanish and English, The Tatu´s Night (Children Stories) and Las Animas (Latin-American spooky tales).
