During the day, I'm a medical case manager at Callen-Lorde, an LGBTQ-focused Federally Qualified Health Center in NYC. I work in the Health Outreach To Teens (HOTT) program, primarily with HIV+ and/or transgender youth ages 13-24. HOTT works to remove barriers to care for adolescents, and to foster an experience in which they have voice and agency in their own health outcomes. I am a member of the World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH) and volunteer my time as founder and co-facilitator of The Tool Shed, the nation's first peer-led support group for trans people seeking support and information about phalloplasty and metoidioplasty procedures. I'm committed to healthcare access for all- Trans health cannot be separated from movements for disability, racial, economic, and women's justice.
Outside of work, I am a member of a diverse and beautiful community of transgender creators, and I enjoy art and social theory about trans, LGB, and HIV issues. In the summertime, you can find me spending as much time as possible at NY's historically LGBT beaches, Riis and Fire Island.
