Trainings

My philosophy of education has been fostered over two decades as a classroom teacher, art historian, museum educator, sex educator, trainer, and professor. This diverse classroom experience reflects my enthusiasm for varied learning styles. As a non-traditional trainer who loves to learn, I cultivate the creative and curious spaces that I would want when exploring new ideas.

I have provided the following interactive workshops and am glad to discuss the creation of a training to meet your needs.
