I've been overtly involved in education around sexuality and safety for about 3 years, but prior to that I was a criminal prosecutor with a specialty in prosecuting sexually violent predators and sex offenders. Of my 20 years as a prosecutor, I spent about 8 years doing that work.


I am a Certified Parent Coach®, Certified Positive Discipline Educator, and sexual abuse/sexual assault prevention educator. While I do some work around sexuality education in general, my primary focus is on safety and prevention. My legal background gives me a unique perspective and insight in this.
