Founded in 2000, American Lives grew out of a desire to bring history to life for students and museum visitors nationwide. The company features Darci Tucker and Terry Yemm, both veteran museum educators with almost 35 years combined experience teaching history at Colonial Williamsburg, the nation�s premier living history museum. Both have extensive experience in working with children, developing museum programming, and teaching adult audiences.

Playwright, actress and storyteller Darci Tucker is a graduate of UCLA. She has authored many successful lesson plans, is a frequent presenter in schools and at educators� conferences nation-wide, and trains teachers and museum professionals to use storytelling and character interpretation as teaching tools. Darci spends most of the school year performing her original, one-woman play, "Revolutionary Women" in schools across the nation.

Garden historian and actor Terry Yemm is a graduate of the University
South Alabama. He also studied at Vanderbilt, Auburn and the College of William and Mary. In addition to his museum work, he lectures at landscape conferences and consults on landscape restoration projects.
