about

I am a British expatriate that has called Omaha, Nebraska home for the last 10 years. I have come both to appreciate and to be curious about the state beyond the city. I believe that conversation helps us to live better and well, as individuals, families, and communities.

PrintDriven by that belief, I founded Squishtalks to design and deliver conversation programs for corporate and non-profit organizations, for public and community purposes. Corporate clients have included Woodmen of the World, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska, First National Bank, Mutual of Omaha and Kiewit. Non-profit and community partners have included Justice for our Neighbors, Habitat for Humanity, Nebraska Appleseed, Joslyn Art Museum, Non-Profit Association of the Midlands, Film Streams, The Kent Bellows Studio, Girl Scouts of Nebraska and the Omaha Young Professionals Council.

In the Omaha community, I have been a Big Brother through Big Brothers Big Sisters and served on the Omaha Public Library Board of Trustees. As an amateur poet, my work has been published in The Antigonish Review, the Blue Moon Literary & Art Review, Euphony Journal and the Tulane Review.

a couple of 830 mile long conversations is being implemented by me with the sponsorship and support of the non-profit Omaha Creative Institute.

    I am REALLY sorry that the day you were in Broken Bow turned out to be too rushed and that I did not learn more about the project. We had a newly arrived exchange (IFFY) from Finland and had another commitment. Hope you come again. Connie
