"On behalf of the Northeast Association of Occupational Health Nurses and the Connecticut State Chapter, we thank you for your excellent presentation -- Into Possession of Myself. It was so well received by our audience and the evaluations were terrific. Thank you!"
Margaret Gildea President
Connecticut Association of Occupational Health Nurses
White made early public health nurse leaders 'come alive'
for a class
of senior nursing students and for a group of professional
nurses. It is one thing to teach about our nurse leaders and
women mentors of the early 20th century--it is quite another
thing to have practicing and future nurses 'experience' their
lives through the art form of drama. Both groups of nurses
who saw her one-woman show were both educated on their nursing
heritage and inspired to new levels of professional behavior.
I highly recommend Ms. White's drama for a wide range of audiences."

White presents a lively and rich interpretation of some of
the most outstanding women in nursing history. She
honors their memory and brings their vision and sacrifice to
a realistic and meaningful level of experience for the audience.
Each nurse who sees her performance leaves feeling in awe of
these forebears and proud to be following in their footsteps.
Pippa’s performance is a gem, not to be missed."
