Jasmine grew up in Houston, TX and received her bachelor's in sociology from Salem College in Winston-Salem, NC. She moved to Boulder in the summer of 2016 to start a PhD program in sociology at CU and Out Boulder County was the first organization she found when she got here. She was relieved by the kindness and hospitality she experienced from support and social groups offered at the Pride House. After a rough first year in a new city, she's beginning to acclimate and integrate herself into the queer community through involvement with events hosted by great organizations like Out Boulder County and Queer Asterisk. Her sweet kitty, Petra, is helping her feel more at home too!
Jasmine enjoys helping out when she can by volunteering for whatever pops up that doesn't conflict with her work and teaching schedule and speaking on Speaking Out panels. She firmly believes that queer and trans youth are the future. Deeply grateful for the support she has received from members of the community, she seeks to help others feel welcomed and supported as well.
