About Jimanekia

I have worked in the mental health field for the last 10 years, which is where I saw the need for increased sexual education and sexual trauma support.

 I am passionate about assisting and supporting sexual assault survivors and those without access to comprehensive sex education. As a queer black woman, I see the world through the lens of marginalization. and am keenly aware of the lack of support for those that are similar to my identity, as well as other marginalized identities. My empathy for these populations has pushed me to continue building safe spaces for clientele, providing education opportunities, helping people to find their voices and their footing often times in a space that is not built for them. As well as supporting folks in different forms of healing and transformation. I currently work as an independent comprehensive sex educator for grades K - 12, the director of Education for the survivor and ally support organization, "More Than No," and a consultant or TV and Film production, bringing a healthy perspective on sex and surviving trauma to every viewer.

My goal is to help you get the support and tools that you do not already have. To help you find your voice and to help you reconnect and heal.

I value being open, honest, and supportive of those that I work with. I look forward to helping you possibly also figure out your values. I approach supporting others with an open and
non-judgmental heart.

I really enjoy music, reading, spending time with my family and friends.
