What I do Job-wise: I am an adjunct instructor in the Women, Gender and Sexuality Department at Florida Atlantic University –- where I bust open and enlighten young minds everyday. I also work as a body positive coach (www.extraordinarybeing.com).
What I do, fun-wise: Honestly, I hang out with my husband. He’s awesome. He calls me pumpkin poop and makes me feel like burping hearts. I also LOVE trashy teen television, the kind of stuff that gets cancelled.
The First Movie Star I Ever Had A Crush On: Fred Savage -– on The Wonder Years. (marginally embarrassing).
The Most Played Song On My iTunes: Honestly, I’m a randomize kind of a girl. But I love Pattie Griffin and Better Than Ezra Last Book I Read Without Skimming Any Parts: Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
My Most Worn Item Of Clothing: Universe print Dress from Re/Dress. Beauty Products That I Hoard: Khiel’s silk groom hair styling serum, lots of lip glosses –- right now I’m into a Sisley phyto lip twist -– but I think that’s because the packaging is zebra striped.
I Smell Like: Dove deodorant –- some cucumber flavored version. Perfume creeps me out a little.
I Have Faked An Orgasm: (Yes/No): Sadly, who hasn’t?
