Why Education?

Stephanie is extremely passionate about young women and feels they have the right to be well educated in regards to their health. She feels a comprehensive approach to sexual education is beneficial and allows these young women to make informed decisions about their health and also understand there may be consequences. Stephanie has seen first hand, that when these young women are educated appropriately, they are more confident and aware in their actions and decisions regarding their sexuality.

How can she help you?

Stephanie understands these are sometimes considered taboo topics and hard to discuss in school and the home.  Her goal is to create a safe space, where these young women can learn true and age appropriate information without feeling embarrassed or judged. A way for parents and guardians to ensure their teen is getting the information they need and also helping to start a dialogue in the home.  Knowledge is power, and the young lady in your life deserves to be informed.
