Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho

Community Health Educator

If you think your job is exciting, try being a sexuality educator for Planned Parenthood in rural communities. It was one of the most rewarding, fun, and occasionally nervous times of my life. I taught everything from puberty & maturation to contraception to teen dating violence prevention to alcohol risk reduction to policy analysis, and trained peer educators to teach a newly developed teen sex ed program to boot.

One of my biggest community advocates when by the time I left Planned Parenthood was a Mormon parent educator who had me come in to teach media literacy so parents could help their kids understand the messages thrown at them each day. I will always be proud to be part of the Planned Parenthood family, and will always enjoy wearing pink.

The full video has is almost impossible to find, but if you look at the 2:29 mark of this clip, you'll see me with a huge patriotic bow in my hair. The full version had another clip of me sharing right after the Senator spoke in Mile High Stadium. We can call this my first cable TV appearance.

Mitzvah of Writing Torah

In 2014 my synagogue held a year-long celebration and had our old Torah repaired and sections rewritten. I was able to fulfill the mitzvah of writing Torah with our visiting scholar. As the Advisory of our temple youth group, this was a simple act that brought me joy.
