What inspires me about working with teens and young adults is…
Sexual health was a taboo thing to discuss or speak openly about in the community I was raised in. My parents always were very open about all things including sex, body development, drugs and alcohol. I found that I ended up talking to the majority of my friends about these things and educating them which opened their ability to navigate the world without being vulnerable.
Something I wish I had been told when I was younger is…
1. Everything will pass so don’t worry
2. Never get in credit card debt
3. Do what you love and love what you do… period
My strange super power is…
My ability to recall and perform 90s rap, also I can kick my leg up very high (like a Rocket Power Dancer )
In my free time, you’ll find me…
Playing with my dogs, running, skiing, doing yoga, and traveling.
