Who Am I, and How I Approach my Work
I am a white, nonbinary/trans person of predominantly Ukrainian & German heritage. I was raised working class. I have the educational privilege of holding an advanced degree. I am neurodivergent and live with chronic illnesses that impact my physical presence in this world.
All of these intersecting identities define my holistic understanding of self. Most importantly, amidst all of these intersections of my identity I practice radical self love.
I love myself.
I show this love by taking care of my body and my spirit. I show this love by practicing rituals of care. I show this love by putting my values into actions so I can live my intentions. I show this love by holding space for my most resilient self to thrive, and my most vulnerable self to be seen. I show this love by encouraging those around me to love themselves in these ways.
