Who is EDSE?
Everyone Deserves Sex Education (EDSE) was founded by Anne Hodder-Shipp, ACS, (she/her pronouns) with the goal of creating an accessible space dedicated to providing accurate, compassionate, and queer-inclusive sex education. Whether you’re a sex educator to-be, a parent preparing for “the talk,” or a professional looking for continued education, Anne’s mission is to provide a safe, supported and friendly space in which clients can learn, grow, and get closer to their personal and professional goals.
A cum laude graduate of the Roy H. Park School of Communications at Ithaca College, Anne’s journalism and sociology studies inspired a unique perspective of the public eye, which led her to work as a journalist before entering the world of sex education. Anne received her first certification and endorsement in 2014 by the renowned San Francisco Sex Information program and continued her training in 2015 via the American College of Sexologists International and Planned Parenthood Los Angeles’s School Based Sex Education Program, where she honed a special skill for working with adolescents.
Though EDSE is headquartered in the heart of Los Angeles, Anne and her team are committed to connecting potential clients with trained sex educators and practitioners across the country. If you’re in need of in-person support outside of the Los Angeles area, Anne and EDSE will help find you someone who’ll be the right fit for your needs. Contact us today.
