Consulting, Training and Workshops

Zine-making is a great way to learn about graphic representation findings and creative data analysis– and it’s fun, too! I use zine-making as one way of exploring arts-based qualitative research. All you need is paper, scissors and something to write with.

I provide workshops in comics, graphic novels and ethnography, teaching and using hands- on drawing and creative technique for qualitative researchers. As a professional comic artist and author, I draw from my experience to make the content and craft accessible for all participants regardless of their level of artistic proficiency. We are all artists! These workshops are ideal for anyone interested in storytelling using words and pictures, social scientists interested in arts-based research methods, or any group of people who work in creative inquiry.

I also offer trainings, workshops, and other kinds of support for schools, school districts, legal and medical practices, and other groups who want to work more effectively with transgender, non-binary and other gender diverse children and youth. I am available to work with your entire staff, or to support individuals, teachers, communities, families or others to develop a better understanding of gender diversity.

Participants in previous trainings and workshops say all kinds of nice things:

“Whip-smart. I could listen to her all day.”

“The parents who attended [the training] have been emailing me all day about your presentation. We are going to need to do more of these. So many great questions, and what you didn’t know, you found out for us. I appreciate that more than anything.”

“Charismatic, engaging, even funny, but so honest and open. I learned so much about gender diversity. She met us where we were and helped us learn how to support families who are also still learning.”

“ROCKSTAR! The training was extremely informative, and so necessary. I came away ready to better serve all kinds of youth after just two hours. Can’t wait to hear her speak again.”

“This training was amazing. You could not tell that there were 200+ people in the room because I felt that she was being so real, so present, and sharing with us all not only information but her own experience.”
