Ann Kellett Communications
what launched my career
I was six years old when the first astronauts landed on the moon on July 20, 1969.
On that day, my grandfather told stories of hearing about the Wright brothers as a child and Charles Lindbergh as a young man.
“What things we have seen in our lives,” he said to my grandmother. I remember the wonder on my grandfather's face--and the stories he told that day--much more vividly than what was on TV.
His remark sparked my professional journey in storytelling.
