Strong people stand up for themselves, but the strongest people stand up for others.
With Master of Education from Iowa State University, I specialize in diversity and social justice education. I am an “Out” Ally and a passionate supporter of LGBT equality. My transformation into an Ally began on a college campus, where I developed the skills I needed to become an effective voice. I spoke at Open Mic for Coming Out Day(s), served on the LGBT Advisory Board, and lobbied for the University to hire full time staff for the LGBT office. I listened to coming out stories and I became Ma Purdy.
