From Bossy to Boss Lady: The Story of a Professional Storyteller
I guess you could say I’ve been a producer my entire life. When I wanted something done, I did whatever it took to make it happen. I love rules and organization and being in charge.

Little did I know it would lead to a career where someone paid me to be the bossy one. I call it leadership skills. - Aimee Tetreault '07
