Meet Your LTYM Denver/Boulder Production Team


Stephanie Sprenger, Executive Producer LTYM Denver/LTYM Boulder

Stephanie Sprenger is a writer, producer, music therapist, and mother of two daughters. Her work has been published in O Magazine, The Washington Post’s On Parenting, Brain, Child Magazine,,, the Huffington Post, and Scary Mommy, among other places, and she (infrequently) blogs about the imperfect reality of motherhood at Mommy, for Real. She is also co-editor of The HerStories Project, a writing and publishing community for women at midlife. Stephanie lives for sunny weekends and Disney vacations, and in between those moments, she fuels herself with coffee, yoga, kickboxing, hot toddies, and snuggles from her eight- and thirteen-year-old daughters.




Megan Vos, Co-Producer, LTYM Denver/LTYM Boulder

Megan Vos was a 2018 LTYM Boulder cast member, and joined the production team in 2019. A New Hampshire native, Megan has lived in Boulder for fifteen years. She taught in Denver Public Schools before leaving the classroom to stay home with her first daughter nine years ago. When she’s not writing during the pre-dawn hours, you can find Megan skiing with her family, listening to Harry Potter audio books with her eight-year-old, and justifying yet another trip to Starbucks with her five-year-old. Megan shares her writing at, and her work has been published in Motherscope magazine.




Jessey Smithwick, Co-Producer, LTYM Denver

Jessey Smithwick started her Listen To Your Mother love affair as an awestruck audience member and is thrilled to be a part of the 2020 production team.  She is originally from Nebraska but is happy to call Colorado her home and has recently embraced the idea of attaching “I Love CO” bumper stickers to her car.  After 20 years in the nonprofit sector, Jessey realized her dream of starting her own business as a Wellness Coach and Holistic Health Practitioner.  You can find her at The Wellbeing Path where she works passionately with her clients but only sporadically on things like marketing, social media, and budget-balancing.  Jessey is the proud mom of an amazing son, Ryan, as well as the bonus mom to a few other wonderful souls.  She has been a professional bellydancer for the past umpteen years, teaching in the Denver metro area, traveling to various parts of the country to perform, and co-producing shows wherever she can.  Though fueled with great love, Jessey’s attempts at regular self-care, downtime, and being a wife are humorous and mediocre at best.



Ellen Nordberg, Creative Consultant LTYM Boulder

Ellen Nordberg’s stories have appeared in The L.A. Times, The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, The Denver Post, The Huffington Post, Yahoo, Parade, and 5280. She’s a creative consultant to the Listen To Your Mother show, and has been a featured storyteller in the “Truth Be Told” Story Slam. “Stories on Stage” has performed her stories, and she holds a Colorado Author’s League Award “Best Essay” award.
