About Safekeeping Stories

Safekeeping Stories runs Storykeeping Workshops, Story Clubs, and One-on-One Sessions that provide education, tools, and a supportive community for Storykeeping, an innovative approach to health and wellness focused on personal story which draws upon history, philosophy, spirituality, psychology, literature and the science of well-being.

We serve individuals, families, communities, and organizations.

Founder

Jill Sarkozi is the Founder of Safekeeping Stories and is the creator of Storykeeping, which arose out of her passion for family stories and her desire to ensure their safekeeping.

Jill has found that everyone has a unique story to tell and enjoys helping people experience the accomplishment that comes from authoring their story and the purpose and meaning they find along the way.

Jill has found particular meaning working with descendants of Holocaust survivors to preserve their relatives’ memories and understand the intergenerational impact of the Holocaust on their lives and on the lives of the families that they are creating. With her encouragement, Jill’s father-in-law documented his Holocaust story for her family.

Jill has a degree in Finance from Tulane University, a law degree from Tulane Law School, and is certified in Applied Positive Psychology. She has four children and lives with her husband outside of New York City.
