Storytellers for February:
Dr. Jennifer Blanco Thomas is a pediatric audiologist, standup comedian, and cool mom. Originally from Miami, Florida, she is a proud 1st generation American whose family is from Havana, Cuba. She serves on the Amphi Foundation and Grace Hearing non-profit boards, produces and hosts a children’s improv comedy show, and volunteers doing hearing testing and hearing aid fitting in Mexico.
Equal parts starry-eyed idealist and crusty construction worker, Joe Silins hails from Phoenix but likes to think he’s been in Tucson long enough to call himself a local. Joe is self-employed in natural building. He enjoys spending time with friends, volunteering, and talking about how he should be camping and hiking more.
Jesseca Banchy, a spiritual being in a really sexy human body that feels immense joy, happiness, and health. She retired at the age of 33 from her career in Western medicine and now dedicates her life to healing humanity to find inner peace, health, and harmony. She is now a full-time YouTuber, writer, athlete, entrepreneur, healer, and life coach. She is available for consultation.
Abby Louise Jensen is a Western, mostly small-town gal, having migrated from Idaho to California to Idaho to California to Washington to Montana to Arizona. She didn’t plan to stay but has now lived in Arizona longer than anywhere else. However, she still misses the Pacific Northwest, its rivers full of trout, her daughters, her granddaughter, and her grandson. In 2012, Abby made her most recent migration from Prescott to Tucson, where she smithed words for the Pima County Public Defender Appeals Team until 2021, when she retired. Abby learned the value of story long ago and is happy to return to the Odyssey stage.
Arlene Malinowski is a Chicago-based solo artist, writer, actor and CODA who is snowbirding in Tucson this winter. Her award-winning solo shows have been produced across the country and abroad. She is a resident playwright at Chicago Dramatist where she teaches solo and story. She is to her knowledge the only actor to have appeared in Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure AND Dougie Howser in the same 24 hours.
