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 24, 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. Eight of our staff members have been with us for over 14 years! (What’s more…Janet is finishing out year 20…And we have several new hires! Hello Jennifer, Emily, and Bianca) 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.
