I’m a sex educator who believes that sex education and sexual violence prevention go hand-in-hand.
My journey into sex education began when I was just 10 years old after a disappointing health class. I started questioning the messages I heard about bodies, gender, sexuality, and morality — and I haven’t stopped questioning them since.
While an undergraduate I helped launch New College of Florida’s first Sex Week and coordinated each annual Sex Week thereafter. I revamped the college’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month programming and increased SAAM event attendance by over 3000% over three years.
In 2014, I opened the Sexual Health and Relationship Education (SHARE) Resource Center on campus in response to a noticeable lack of accessible resources for survivors and their loved ones. I worked as a volunteer victim advocate with SPARCC and hold certifications from the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the Florida Coalition Against Sexual Violence.
I previously worked with The Center for Sexual Pleasure & Health as the Programs Manager and Social Media Strategist. During this time I traveled across the country delivering fun and inclusive sex education to colleges and universities. I’m happy to say that I’m still a member of The CSPH’s fantastic traveling education team!
Today, I teach workshops at colleges and universities around the United States on a freelance basis, as well as with The CSPH. I also teach virtually through O.School, in addition to providing social media strategy to sex education organizations and professionals.
My teaching areas of focus are un/healthy relationships, communication & consent, queer/trans-centered sex education, and recovery from trauma.
With experience ranging from founding sex ed programs on college campuses to serving as a victim advocate to educating professionally across the country with The Center for Sexual Pleasure & Health, and to working in Audience Growth at Upworthy, I have the experience to engage and learn with your students.
