Feminist. Writer. Bridge Builder.
I am a trauma-informed
I am also a
feminist ethnic studies scholar, education consultant, mystic, and writer.
I love teaching the vintage writings of feminist foremothers to better understand how we transform the world together.
And, yes, I love styling vintage clothes, too. (This dress is 1920s.)
My life's work is our connection
to collective healing...
across the generations.
MY PHILOSOPHY BEHIND
TEACHING & CONSULTING
I had the privilege of longterm training by many top scholars, from both the Ivy League to the more radical UC California system of education. But I do most of my own teaching outside the walls of the university because my vision as a scholar has always been interconnected to my work as a social entrepreneur.
I use my research to teach and partner with those leading visionary and collective change at all levels—
from K-12 teachers and activists, to artists and faith leaders, to journalists, caregivers, moms, entrepreneurs, athletes, body positive activists, therapists, and doctors and nurses.
I love partnering with people who desire to create a more just and flourishing world together in every way we can imagine and build.
I bring to our partnership my own devotion to feminist research, which I conduct across multiple fields (including ethnic studies, religious studies, and counseling psychology).
I offer the unique intellectual depth of having done research in 5 graduate programs and in 62 graduate courses!
(Only 16–19 are typically required for 1 Ph.D.).
I know how valuable such interdisciplinary feminist research is.
I also know how inaccessible such study is for most people.
Since 2006, I have designed my courses, programs, and workshops for those outside academia in my efforts to build bridges and redistribute feminist studies research. Since 2011, I have honed the use of online methods of education.
And unlike the traditional university, I can offer an experience customized to your life, professional goals, and limits of time, geography, and energy. I use my own investments to substantially shorten the time and resources you need to get access to transformative feminist learning.
Because my research is interdisciplinary, I have expertise in what it means to create knowledge across professions and alongside my clients' expertise—a foundational practice for the kinds of partnerships I invest in.
My model of feminist leadership and consultancy is always to create synergy across areas of expertise and passion—so that we can tackle injustice together and build the world we know is possible.
No one field of knowledge has all the needed answers for the vast complexity
of what it will mean to meet the challenges our world is facing.
Every area of expertise holds both possibilities and limits, dogma and innovative thresholds for change, power struggles and potential for transforming those hierarchies of knowledge.
I believe that feminist models of collaboration and coalitions—
across many areas of knowledge, both inside and outside academia—
help us shift status quo assumptions and rewrite together
our collective liberation.
