Audrey Batterham is a community educator and counsellor in Tkaranto (Toronto, Canada). Right now she is building her own business and facilitating women’s empowerment groups, but she worked with homeless youth for over a decade. She managed harm reduction leadership projects, and also did a lot of crisis intervention and counselling. Audrey is pleased to share her writing, and hopes that her reflections on the field will bring awareness and change. She loves comedy, her nephews, and days where she doesn’t have to do anything.
