I am the executive director of the nationally acclaimed Center for Family Life Education and the editor-in-chief of the American Journal of Sexuality Education.  I have co-authored many sex ed teaching resources, including Making Sense of Abstinence; Older, Wiser, Sexually Smarter; Sex Ed 101; Streetwise to Sex-Wise and seven editions of Taking Sides: Clashing Views in Human Sexuality.  My newest publication is the two-volume third edition of Teaching Safer Sex, for which I served as editor-in-chief. 

I have trained thousands of professionals throughout the United States, and twice I had the privilege of advocating for sexuality education at U.S. Congressional briefings. I have been honored with national awards for leadership in sexuality education, including the first “Schiller Prize” given by the American Association for Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists for best workshop using interactive strategies and the “Golden Apple Award,” given by the Association for Planned Parenthood Leaders in Education. I also received an award from Sexual Intelligence, which named me “one of the country’s pre-eminent sex educators, trainers, and sex education theorists.”

The Reason I Became A Helping Professional

I wrote an article about how I got started, and in that article, I included tips for others professionals looking to become a sexuality educator.
