Jeanne has spent much of her career helping people to rescue things they care about, whether random archaeological sites, abandoned buildings, discarded documents, forgotten histories, overlooked periods of architecture, a sense of humor or just simply people’s own personal stories. Through this she has learned the power of the past and how it can shape the future. Through improvisation and storytelling, Jeanne hopes to help individuals and organizations create a better future for themselves, their community and the world. To that end, in 2014, she established a small company, Lamb Ink, with a simple idea, “be kind, be generous, be happy and with improv and storytelling, help others to do the same.”
Originally, from Chicago, now living in Hong Kong, Jeanne studied improvisation in Chicago. She holds a B.S. in Anthropology from Loyola University of Chicago and an M.S. in Historic Preservation from the School of the Art Institute.
She has performed, presented and conducted workshops in the US, Europe and Asia. Ms. Lambin’s workshops have been described as “amazing,” “powerful,” and “great fun.” Her work has been featured in the Hong Kong’s Top Notch Storytelling Festival, Liar’s League Hong Kong, Literary Death Match, the Art’s House World Voices Presents, the Moth Chicago, Story Lab and This Much is True. Ms. Lambin is a proud to be a founding member of Improv for Humanity and co-creator of The Quest: Improv for Transformation.
