I fell in love with stories when I was five. My Mom used to take my book away and order me outside to play.
To me, just about anything is a story; only the purpose and the audience change. I write about mental health/substance use policy, healthcare workforce, political philosophy, history of coffee and everything in between. I am constantly adding to my portfolio. Tying it all together is my endless curiosity and desire to help others.
That desire to help is probably why I worked in healthcare for over 16 years. In that time, I set up new programs in mental health care, written and awarded contracts, and helped oversee a program that reimburses hospitals. Through it all, I’ve told stories to different audiences. I told about programs’ cost, challenges and successes. I have written reviews for amazon since 2003. In 2008, I became a Vine Voice. In 2015, my husband and I started a blog. I have an active social media presence and actively post on Facebook and Twitter.
I stopped publishing my work in 2001 so my published research is not available online. But in 2000 and 2001, I was privileged to be one of the researchers on the following evaluations:
Amanda Noble, Elizabeth Brannon-Patel, and Inna Tysoe, An Evaluation of Sexual Response Team Advocates, CA: Office of Criminal Justice Planning, October 2001
Randy Bonnell, Elizabeth Brannon-Patel, Inna Tysoe, and Grant Boyken, An Evaluation of Statutory Rape Vertical Prosecution, CA: Office of Criminal Justice Planning, July 2001
Matthew Zafonte, Amanda Noble, Norm Coontz, Elizabeth Brannon, Bethania Maria, and Inna Tysoe, The Drug Endangered Children Response Team Development Program Evaluation Report, CA: Office of Criminal Justice Planning, December 2000
I would love to help you tell your story. If you like the writing you see here and think I can help with your project, please contact me at inna [at] tysoes [dot] com.
