Born in Kalispell MT, Jennie Pak has deep Montana roots. A love of history and theater lead to her current stint as a living history presenter for Humanities MT. Jennie travels the state performing her one-hour programs at libraries, schools, assisted living facilities and museums. In her day job, she is a senior care provider for Home Instead Senior Care, where the biggest perk is listening to stories from her clients. In her spare time, Jennie helps as a volunteer organizer for Stories and Stones, an annual historical storytelling event at Missoula Cemetery.
Jenny Pak joins us this week as we talk about her visit to Hong Kong where her in-laws live.
Jenny’s story was recorded in front of a live audience on March 29th, 2016, at The Wilma in Missoula, MT. The theme was “Why Didn’t Anyone Tell Me?”.
Visiting her brother-in-law in Hong Kong, Jennie had an adverse reaction to all of the walking she’s enduring. In an effort to help her heal, she undergoes a regimen of acupuncture, smudging and drinking a mysterious concoction whipped up by a Chinese Medicine Man.
Jenny calls her story “Drink This, it’s Good for You”.
We mention her story about The Labyrinth during our conversation. If you’d like to watch that story, you can watch it here.
