Chevy Chase, MD resident Ellouise Schoettler is a North Carolina native and 22 year professional storytelling veteran. She calls herself an “old-time Southern teller,” just like the family storytellers she grew up listening to on the front porch and around the dinner table.
Ellouise blends personal experience, memories and history into programs which give voice to ordinary people.
Today she tells her original story-programs coast to coast for adult, family and youth audiences at various venues including festivals, colleges, libraries and genealogical societies.
Since 2008 Ellouise has hosted two weekly cable storytelling shows on Channel 16 (MMCTV.org) Montgomery County, MD.
