Our Staff & Board

We are educators and creators. Planners and do-ers. Always willing to listen and ready to help. And we’re passionate about what we do. We take it pretty seriously when we say that every young person has the right to live their authentic sexuality. We believe in our work, and in you, and we love what we do.

We are a small but mighty staff of 16, and like any small nonprofit, we count on the strengths of our staff to get the job done. That means that day-to-day, many of us wear many hats and work across many projects. It also means we get a ton of opportunities to always be learning and growing.

That’s probably just one of the reasons why our staff tend to stick around. Nine of our staff members have been with us for over 10 years! (What’s more…Janet is finishing out year 18…And we have several new hires! Hello Charlie Blue, Kaitlyn, and Monique!) So yeah, we love what we do and we love Healthy Teen Network. Our experience is a major strength for us, and it makes us even more ready and able to help you.
