positionality statement

(Positionality is the social and political context that creates your identity in terms of race, class, gender, sexuality, and ability status. Positionality also describes how your identity influences, and potentially biases, your understanding of and outlook on the world.)

Born and raised a US citizen in predominantly white neighborhoods, I grew up non-religious and was ostracized for not being a member of the predominant religion.     

I currently reside on Ute and Southern Paiute land that was colonized and is now commonly referred to as the state of Utah. (https://native-land.ca/)

Socioeconomically, I’ve lived primarily in the middle to lower class.

I identify as a cisgendered, omnisexual, monogamous woman in her late 30s.

I am mostly, but not entirely, able-bodied.  

I am a trauma survivor that continues to heal. 

I am considered neurodivergent as a Highly Sensitive Person. 

I understand that these things, and more, impact my personal and professional position, perspective, and biases. I do my best to keep learning and growing, as well as taking accountability for my ignorance. I also do my best to create spaces that are inclusive and compassionate for all who enter.
