Sex Goddess, published author, avid reader, grandmother… all labels that work to begin defining me. Lover of bourbon, woman finding her voice, growing older with audacity. For starters…
Divorced, single and slightly over-educated, I came to this work through my lifelong love of writing. Writing for me is a personal journey as well as a tool to inspire, inform, and educate others. In my writing I explore sexuality, relationships, women’s (and men’s) sexual health, aging and other midlife topics.
I have a Masters in Educational Psychology; I’ve been a bus driver, a caterer, the executive director of sexual assault crisis centers, and a caregiver. My life experiences and work in the field of violence against women allowed me to support and work with women in times of crisis and transition.
We are all in some form of transition.
As we make the transition from our younger selves to wise and mature women, we have a common desire to explore our lives and give voice to our joys and our wisdom. Midlife women possess a wealth of knowledge. Yet there is always more to learn. I view knowledge as a powerful force—sharing strengthens us and bonds us together. Finding our voices as women has never been more important.
My focus is midlife sexuality. Menopause, aging, and other life transitions can have a tremendous impact on our sexuality. I want to help women find the resources and the inspiration to live fully expressed sexual lives–in whatever form that takes for you. I work with women individually, through speaking and educating at conferences and other venues, and by writing for various online sites about sexuality and sexual health.
If you’re looking for a public speaker for your next event, let’s talk about how we can work together. If you want to take your sexual life to the next level, we can work together to find creative solutions. Check out my resume and drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
