Research interests: Sex Work, Institutional Stigma, Peer research, lived experience

I am a registered social service worker who holds a BA and MA in Sociology and who has additional training in Addictions. My research explores the role (institutional) stigma has in the experiences of sex working students in academia. I believe sex worker rights are both human and labour rights, and that harm reduction saves lives. My hope is towards a future where sex workers no longer hold their heads down in shame.
