Telling and listening is my life’s breath. This is my prayer. This is my discipleship to the God Who Tells and Listens.
I was born in Manhattan, New York City in 1943 -- the first-born child of immigrant parents. I am a traditional storyteller who first learned my art from Emilia Sipos Wilhelm, my Hungarian grandmother and Valeria Norisova Wilhelm, my Slovak mother.
My Master's is in Religious Education (1971), and my Doctorate is in Sacred Storytelling as a Performing Art (1976) I have taught pre-school, elementary school, college, and graduate school I also established a specialty travel company (1981) and a professional school of storytelling (1994).
I am married to Dr. Mary Jo Kelly Wilhelm, who is an adjunct professor of travel & tourism.
