Clinic & Outreach Specialist
Taurus Sun/Aries Moon/Gemini Rising
Hi! I’m Jen! I started hanging out with H.O.P.E. as a volunteer in 2019, took a covid break, and am so thrilled to be back as part of the staff!
I work in harm reduction because I have a personal relationship with the work and have used harm reduction services in other cities. Most of us want to stay safe even when we know we’re doing something risky, and I wanted to help people do that.
When it comes to STI info, I want people to know that having an STI increases their risk of contracting HIV through sex.
For fact sheets and information on STI prevention and education I’d check out the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
What I do in my spare time:
I love hanging with friends and family. Any spare time I have is generally spent relaxing with them. I also enjoy reading and knitting or crocheting.
My favorite spots in Tulsa are:
I enjoy any spot where a friend is playing a show, but until things are safe again my main spots are scenic drives like Reservoir Hill, Avery Drive, the refinery, 36th St N, the airport.
My go-to karaoke song:
I’ve never actually done karaoke, but I’d love to take a stab at Meat Loaf’s ”Paradise by the Dashboard Light.”
