My start-up, The Frederick Center, works to educate those in the helping professions. We specialize in cultural competency and diversity courses that will help professionals navigate our multicultural society. I'm Black, left-handed, Appalachian, married, and transgender, and I love not fitting into stereotypes. I also recently published a book, "TransGuy: Thoughts on Gender, Love, and Sex".

I enjoy beating my husband at squash, cooking, and globe-trotting, and space tourism is definitely on my bucket list. I'm a science junkie and have a BSS in geology and plant biology and an M.Ed. in cultural studies. I'm passionate about critical pedagogies that center around multicultural education, and I develop and instruct courses for The Frederick Center, Muskingum University, and Ohio University.
