Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: As an advance practice nurse and Assistant Professor of Nursing (Maternal Child Health), I have provided sexuality education in a variety of settings, to a wide range of participants. I have also treated victims of childhood sexual abuse, and held board positions for community organizations that focus on these issues. Now, years of practice and teaching are focusing me toward research on the specific ways that comprehensive sexuality education can improve the health of communities.
