I am the Assistant Director of Social Enterprise and Training at Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders where I am responsible for directing SAGE’s national training initiatives, developing training curricula, and providing consulting services to both aging and LGBT service providers. I blog at The Second Shift: Academic Feminism After Hours and have contributed to The New Statesman and the American Society on Aging Blog among others. My first book Affirmation, Care Ethics and LGBT Identity will be published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2016.
I received my PhD in Philosophy from SUNY Stony Brook. My research focuses on feminist and queer theory, contemporary French philosophy (specifically Bergson), LGBT aging and biomedical ethics.
As an Inclusivity Consultant, I work with conference organizers and event planners to create professional environments that welcome diversity, invite conversation, and foster a sense of community. I specialize in LGBTQ sensitivity training and workplace bullying prevention.
