Yvonne Healy is a professional Irish storyteller who regularly performs at Midwest, national, and international Irish festivals, story slams, conferences, and other spoken word events. As a child, she and her family moved to the United States from Ireland. Many of her stories come from both her experience as an Irish immigrant and from her family background, including stories of her grandfather, Christy Robinson. Along with true stories, Healy's repertoire includes revived Irish myths, folktales, and legends. She has also published several articles in industry magazines such as Storytelling Magazine and the Michigan Humanities Council's newsletter, as well as written versions of her stories in short-story collections.
