Welcome to my home page. In the bar above, you can find links to more information about me and my performances as Mary Lincoln, as well as my out-of-character lectures about the Lincoln family and other topics in history.

What makes me different, and why should you choose my presentations?

 I have 25+ years of experience presenting my programs across Chicagoland and beyond. I have been studying the Lincoln Family for more than 50 years. I have performed at The Lincoln Home National Historic Site (one of only 4 women who have done so), and I have spoken to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum volunteers.  You will not find a more knowledgeable solo Mary Lincoln presenter!

Why would you choose to hire someone who presents multiple characters, which they have studied just enough to give a program about when you can benefit from the knowledge and experience of Valerie, who has spent her life researching the Lincoln Family?
