Share your favorite WW office resource: The button maker! I have a massive button collection and I love being able to make my own buttons that include messages on my favorite wellness topics!
Share your fave WW program or event: My favorite event that I worked on this year was Pornucopia, which focused on self-pleasure, safe sex, ethical porn consumption, and learning about your body. I loved having open conversations with students about sexuality and answering their amazing question! I hope to repeat this event next year, and raffle off some more sex toys 🙂
What’s one thing you wish students knew about WW space?: That we take a really multi-dimensional approach to wellness- it’s not all nutrition promotion and STI prevention (although I do love talking contraception during my office hours). We also do things like help students work through conflicts with roommates, family members, and professors that may be negatively impacting their well-being. I also wish students knew that there is no issue too “small” or minor to bring to office hours- if something is affecting your wellness in any way, we would love to see you!
Share something you enjoy about being a peer ed: I love working to create sex-positive programs that educate students on really important and interesting topics typically not included in school sex education programs.
Favorite odd thing in the office?: The ovary stuffed animal!
