I am a queer Latinx and believe everyone has a right to a healthy and pleasurable sexuality, regardless of age, orientation, gender identity, or ability. Since middle school, I have been the person people go to with questions about sex, their body, dating, and pleasure. At age 18, I professed that I would be “the next Dr. Ruth” and set out on a path to get me there. I obtained a Masters degree in Human Sexuality Education from Widener University's Center for Human Sexuality Studies and am a Licensed Social Worker (PA).
I co-founded SEXx with Dr. Timaree Schmit, that was inspired by TEDx and first held in May 2014, in honor of National Masturbation Month. I have created and facilitated sexuality workshops and trainings for groups of all sizes. In my life I have and continue to work in reproductive health and justice, HIV prevention, queer Latinx community work, social justice, and youth development. I host in-home pleasure-focused sexuality education workshops and toy parties through My Secret Soiree. I have spoken to people one-on-one, as well as to 2,000+ person audiences about sex and sexuality. I am also one-half of Unatee - a queer Latinx owned and operated company creating products that promote love, unity and social consciousness.
I will continue supporting the empowerment of individuals and communities through individual coaching, capacity building trainings, sexuality workshops, public speaking, online resources, and in-home sexuality parties.
