Course Curriculum

Laura Wolford

I'm your friendly neighborhood speech-language pathologist, researcher, and sex educator. (she/her)

My lived experience is as a biracial, bisexual person who lives with chronic pain. My identities allow me a unique perspective on invisible identity and unspoken experience.  As not-often-discussed parts of the human experience, sex and intimacy lie right within that world.  I bring a nuanced perspective of intersectionality, inclusivity, and advocacy for my clients' sexual health, rights, and safety.
