ABOUT ME

I’m a social worker, public health professional, and Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) who focuses on sexual and reproductive health. My work centers on ensuring that people have the information and access that they need to make empowered health decisions for themselves. For the last six years, I've worked with young people, college students and other adults to deliver inclusive, high-quality, empowering information about their sexuality and health. In addition, I work with medical students, residents, primary care providers, OB/GYN specialists, mental health practitioners, patient educators, and other practitioners who work with patients to help ensure they are comfortable and prepared for conversation about sexuality, especially as they pertain to LGBTQ+ folks, young people, and the many other identities patients hold.


In May of 2019, I graduated from the Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis with masters degrees in social work and public health, concentrating on sexual health and education. I completed my undergraduate studies at Truman State University, receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences with concentrations in business administration and health administration. I’m a Certified Health Education Specialist in addition to being a peer health education specialist and trainer. I have also been trained as a Contraceptive Counselor.  I am also under the supervision of Dr. Susan Stiritz to become a Certified Sexuality Educator through the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists.

As a community activist, I am always looking for ways to integrate justice of all kinds into service provision.  In my free time, I work actively with local initiatives to address systemic racism in local institutions and serve as the co-chair of the West County Community Action Network. I also enjoy trying new recipes, listening to stories, and exploring hidden parts of St. Louis, Missouri, my hometown and current location.
