I'm the Executive Director of TransActive Education & Advocacy, a Portland, Oregon-based non-profit that provides education, advocacy, support and research services to transgender and gender non-conforming children, youth and their families.

I have served on the Board of the Oregon Safe Schools and Communities Coalition and am on the Advisory Boards for both the Trans Youth Equality Foundation and the GLBTQ Online High School.
I'm an alumna of U
