Cheryl Dalton



I am a seasoned life story gatherer with certifications in Guided Autobiography and Legacy Letter Writing. My journey into this field began after a 45-year career in nursing. I worked for many years as a Family Nurse Practitioner in rural community clinics and was a certified nurse educator teaching nursing in community college and university settings. Since retiring from nursing, I have taught adult English language learners. As a Legacy Story Coach, I pursue my passion for storytelling by helping others tell and write their life stories. I am an active Toastmasters member, striving to improve my personal storytelling craft. I firmly believe everyone possesses a unique and compelling story worthy of sharing.
