Grace received their BA in Interdisciplinary Studies in Culture from Scripps College in 2011. Their research focused on media representations of embodiment and queer sexuality in mainstream and non-mainstream sex film. They worked on a research project in Shanghai focusing on attitudes regarding sex work, censorship, and sexual and romantic escalation among college-age Chinese youth, as well as levels of awareness around STI transmission and prophylactics. They served as lead coordinator for a peer mentoring program serving LGBTQ undergraduate students. Most recently, they helped clients heal from chronic pain, athletic injury, and invasive surgery through massage therapy, breath, and movement.
Grace assists with administrative functions for SHERC and is the web lead for the SHERC website. They are committed to making SHERC resources inclusive and accessible to users of diverse experiences and abilities. Their personal research projects are on ethics and personal responsibility (how to do the right thing) and on body language and charisma (how to make and deepen positive relationships). They are currently dabbling in volunteer work at the intersection of spirituality and lifespan sex education.
