I have been practicing sexuality education for over twenty years. I have had the opportunity to work for Planned Parenthood and an Adolescent Health Center as a sexuality educator prior to working within higher education. I am also faculty at the Institution of Sexuality Education and Enlightenment where I have the opportunity to teach professionals seeking certification in sexuality education, sexuality counseling, or sex therapy. I have won numerous awards for my programming within higher education specifically in sexuality education and I have provided hundreds of presentations on college campuses, and at regional and national conferences. I have also published several publications including one on a new ethics model for sexuality educators.
