Hi! I’m Carolina (care-o-leena) Paredes from Skydive Tennesee. Having had many years of experience with therapy and writing as therapy I have been able to help others express themselves in writing in order to be able to bring their story to life through words. I have been writing to express myself since I first held a pencil and later pen to paper. I can help someone articulate and bring out what is inside their mind and heart into words and onto paper. We all have stories that are important to be seen and heard. Contact me to help you work through your favorite storyline and brainstorm ideas for capturing images that express captivating emotion for your story.

Hi! My name is Halle McConnell, and I'm from Columbus, Ohio. I am a social worker, so I love helping people, which is why the opportunity to be an editing coach is super exciting to me. This offers me the chance to combine my passions: helping others, making videos, and of course skydiving. I got into skydiving while in college at OSU, where I was in a student organization focused on making short films. I am so proud to be a part of this project and to be able advocate for women in this amazing sport. I can help you with your storyline theme and making a plan to put your video together in a cohesive way with the right shots.
