I consider myself a teacher, a feminist, an activist, a sexologist, a spouse and a mother (not necessarily in that order). I like to start things: I started a teen pregnancy prevention program in Lucas County Schools, a sex education program at Emory University, the Cocoon Shelter in Bowling Green, and the Women’s Center at BGSU. I believe in justice, passion, the well-crafted written and spoken word, the power of kindness and the possibility of redemption.
