Mrs. Thomas Jefferson
My name is Gina Marie Aleo, and I've been enthusiastically portraying Martha Wayles Skelton Jefferson, speaking about Founding Father Thomas Jefferson's legacy & contributions to the nation from his wife's perspective. I speak about the historical man while relaying anecdotes on family & friends which helps fill out the image of reality for audiences. Audience members are enthralled by this unique view into Thomas Jefferson's life, humanizing him & making him approachable (and, yes, I do cover his lifespan 1743-1826.) It is very engaging & educational.
