I have worked in mental health for the last 10 years, which is where I saw the need for sexual education and sexual trauma support. This has led to my passion for assisting and supporting those that are sexual assault survivors and those without access to comprehensive sex education. My compassion and passion for these populations has pushed me to continue building safe spaces for clientele, sharing education, and supporting their mental spaces.
