Hi! I’m Carleena Angwin–storyteller, educator, and host of  The Carleena Show  podcast. I live in Chattanooga, Tennessee with my significant other, Steven, and my two mutts, Luna and Mabel.

Before moving to Chattanooga from upstate New York, I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Panama from 2001-2003, taught English at a university in Mexico from 2004-2005, and worked as a trek instructor for Where There Be Dragons in 2005. My first job after moving to Chattanooga was in the foster care/juvenile court system from 2005-2008.

Currently, I work in public health and train health care professionals in evidence-based programming, practice radiological response exercises, facilitate health and wellness programs & co-authored an article in the Journal of Inter-professional Education & Practice. Occasionally, I speak to local media. I’m a certified English/Spanish interpreter and Chronic Disease Self-Management Master Trainer.

In 2018, I graduated with an MFA in Nonfiction from Goucher College. While enrolled in the program, I completed a 150 page manuscript that is the basis of my forthcoming book.

I love talking to people one-on-one and hearing their stories.
