Advising & Consulting
Whether it’s a one-time gig or a long term working relationship, I advise, consult, and generally educate a variety of professionals behind the scenes. For example:
- Consultant & Strategist, Transgender Health Program for a hospital in San Francisco
- Health Across the Gender Spectrum, Coursera Course by Stanford Medical
- The ABC’s of LGBTs, a new YA book by Ash Mardell
- The Diversity Style Guide, Center for Integration and Improvement of Journalism at San Francisco State University
- When No Gender Fits, The Washington Post
New opportunities? Talk to me.
Workshops and Trainings
I’ve developed training for medical professionals on a range of topics, from basic trans 101 to trans adolescents to nonbinary transition (my favorite, of course). I present my own workshops at national transgender conferences such as Gender Odyssey (2012-2016), Philadelphia Trans Health (2012, 2013, 2016), and Gender Spectrum (2012, 2013, 2018).
