Pippa White graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a B.A. in English. She turned to solo performing in 1994, after an extensive career in theatre and television on the West Coast, including five years hosting a daily morning television show on ABC in San Francisco. In addition to professional storytelling, she offers workshops (Mining the Gold in the History Books: Finding Great Stories in History; Speech 101: How to Improve All Speaking Skills) and residencies, and has been a teaching artist with Nebraska Arts Council since 1990. She has received several awards in recognition of her work, including two Individual Artist Fellowship awards from the Nebraska Arts Council.

Her One's Company Productions are "part theatre, part storytelling, part history." Audiences call them unique, captivating, and touching. To date she has crisscrossed the country many times as a professional storyteller, touring to over 30 states, performing at universities and colleges, conferences, performing arts centers, museums, libraries, and festivals.

Pippa has performed three times at the United Solo Theatre Festival in New York City, where she garnered a review that called her work "...riveting, heartbreaking and suspenseful." An audience member recently captured the gist of Pippa's unique presentations when he said, "her performances are entertainment wrapped in history intertwined with "inspiration".
