I am a writer, educator, consultant & coach in the realms of transformative and inspiring conversations, thinking & living.
I obtained my Ph.D. in English and MA in Philosophy from The Graduate and University Center of The City University of New York, obtaining the first interdisciplinary concentration in LGBTQ/Sexuality Studies at the Ph.D. level in the United States. My BA, Honor’s degree in English is from Simon Fraser University in BC. I have consistently participated in many years of leadership, coaching, and professional development training and have a number of certifications.
I have published literary articles, poetry, prose, academic theory, and literary reviews as well as edited hard copy, websites, magazines, and journals. I teach Literature, Writing, Gender and Sexuality Studies, and Interdisciplinary/Cultural Studies. I coordinate, facilitate, collaborate, and speak at workshops, groups, panels, events, and conferences. I coach individuals and consult on projects that inspire me and serve to elevate people and the world.
My mission is to facilitate learning, connection, transformation, and freedom. I am committed to fostering and expanding awareness and knowledge, alignment with one’s highest potential and self, and people experiencing a new freedom and connection in all areas of life.
I mostly traffic at the intersections of literature, language, writing, and progressive ideas & actions at the personal & social/cultural level. Much of my specialty work focuses on gender, sexuality, desire, roles, and identity. My approach is to facilitate authentic conversations and impactful learning that clears the cobwebs and offers a fresh perspective that empowers & enlivens. In all aspects of my work, I enjoy creating the space for increased knowledge, self-awareness, and self-expression; my vision is that through our personal growth and expansion, our connection, contribution, and love with ourselves, others, and the world is expanded.
