Communications Specialist, LGBTQ Advocate, and Actvist in the United States
I grew up in the Virgin Islands and graduated summa cum laude from San Francisco State with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Human Sexual Studies. A brief career in freelance writing in the Virgin Islands was followed by a move to the Ozarks, where I opened and operated a fine dining restaurant for 18 years.
I became an investigative reporter after retiring from the restaurant business, but four slashed tires convinced me to quit that line of work and focus on publishing my novel, “Love, Sex, and Understanding the Universe.” I'm a board member of BiNet USA, and I write, advocate, consult, and speak about bisexuality. Among other work, I've written a monthly bisexual column for a regional LGBT print newspaper; written articles for Bi Women Quarterly, including a piece entitled “Solutions for Bisexual Mental Health Issues;” and write on bisexual topics for the online LGBT news and entertainment site, Unicorn Booty. I also was the communications director for an art company. Currently I write for the Bisexual Institute of America’s blog, am completing my second novel, and am active in the resistance movement.
In 2015, I gave a workshop at the BECAUSE Conference on bisexual specific mental health issues.
In 2016, I was a nominated Change Maker to the White House Summit on the United State of Women, and in conjunction attended the Federal Justice Department’s symposium on violence against women. Also in 2016, I was given a scholarship to take part in Arkansas HRC’s LGBT competency training for medical and mental health professionals. I was selected also in 2016 to participate in the White House’s convening on Advancing Progress for Rural LGBT peoples.
After the 2016 election, I became a leader of, and communications director for Indivisible Eureka Springs. I also got involved in CPD actions and Birddog Nation, and have been arrested for Civil Disobedience in Washington D.C. on several actions, including protesting during the Senate vote on the GOP Tax Scam, with over 600 women protesting the Separation of Families, and in the Kavanaugh hearing room.
In the 2018 general election, I was elected Justice of the Peace for district 3, Carroll County, Arkansas.
