Plus - I have published poetry, critical writing and creative non fiction. My writing has even been on display as art exhibition, recorded, and also read in museum environments! My 2003 BA senior study investigates consensual sex work, forced prostitution during war, and sex trafficking. Since 2012 I've revisited the topic, generating educational materials for live presentation, plus I moderate two WordPress sites on the topic of cultural perspectives, policies, and laws relative to sex work. My Master of Arts is in the Health, Arts & Sciences where I studied technical writing for health care, qualitative research methodologies and women's health. Sex work v Sex trafficking is my primary ongoing discussion topic, with secondary and tertiary facets of coverage on criminalization concerns relative to street based economies and health care / policy.
