This website essentially exists as an information hub to direct people for resources and save me the emotional energy of explaining the same things over and over again, if I’m being completely honest…
It’s also a place to house all the blog posts that I very occasionally write.
Understanding that neurodivergent people are valuable variations in the world around us can help us start creating a society of acceptance and understanding, a system that stops “othering” humans who are different.
EDUCATOR. LEARNER. MIDWIFE. WRITER. NEURODIVERGENT. DISABLED. QUEER. BIG CAPRICORN ENERGY.
I spend a lot of time talking with people about ableism, sexuality, neurodiversity, LGBTQ+ issues (particularly trans issues), and ethical evidence-based healthcare that prioritizes informed consent and bodily autonomy.
The topics you’ll generally find me writing and teaching about are important to me because they’re my own lived experience – I’m an autistic, queer, agender midwife with chronic pain. Most of these facets of my identity are things I love about myself (I could do without the pain, if I’m being picky) but they can also make life a little tricker to navigate – especially with people who don’t know much about these topics and don’t understand my world. If you’d like to learn more about how I live in the world, this website is a great starting point.

Occasionally I find the time to write something other than syllabi. It’s not often.
