Heather (she/her or they/them) has been a pelvic physical therapist for 15 years in western North Carolina. She is a University of Michigan trained Sexuality Counselor and Educator. She founded Vino & Vulvas in 2015 and it quickly became her favorite thing to do. She teaches community classes such as “Field Guide to Your Crotch” and “How to Talk to Your Doctor about Your Nonbinary Crotch” for transgender and nonbinary folx. Heather created the Transgender Pelvic Health Survey (currently in progress) and teamed up with Nova Southeastern University and the Pelvic Health Research Initiative for its implementation and data analysis. In 2016, she presented at the Southeastern Transgender Health Summit on the topic of pelvic PT considerations for the surgical trans patient. She presented at the 2018 AASECT conference on the topic of BDSM/Kink and Pelvic Health. Despite all the clinical stuff, Heather considers herself an artist… and if truth be told, she’d love to just draw fantastical crotch doodles and outside-the-box anatomy illustrations all day. This unusual hobby led to the creation of her first self-published book, Important Parts: A Coloring Book for the Crotch Enthusiast. She’s in the process of the second one in the series.
What people are saying about Heather's Courses
This course is a must for all healthcare providers, as it presents a holistic view of patient populations that need better informed care from their providers. I came out of this course with the tools and knowledge to feel more confident and competent to work with these patient populations.
Heather and Tuesday were fantastic presenters and made sure that all course participants felt comfortable asking questions and sharing experiences. I have been wanting to take this course for a long time and I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to take it. Thank you for an in-depth and comprehensive course!
So grateful to both Heather and Tuesday for all their incredible hard work in putting together this course, along with their vulnerability and honesty. This was an incredible experience, and honestly spacing it out in the form of webinars made the material easier to digest and reflect upon. Thank you!!
