mary kay morrisonWhat is your name?

Mary Kay Morrison

What are you best known for?

I’m probably best known as the founder and director of the Humor Academy-the educational arm of the Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor.

How long have you been in the humor space?

20 years.

How did you get started using humor?

When I worked at the Regional Office of Education, I became increasingly concerned about the emphasis on testing and assessment and not on meeting the needs of the child. We grow and learn best when we are engaged and in a positive emotional state.

What is one thing you wish everyone knew?

That excess stress and poor health habits are killers. Humor, laughter and a positive outlook on life are antidotes.

What is your favorite food?

A fresh ripe tomato from the garden.
