Hola! My name is Lila.

I identify with many things but in essence I am Spirit living a human experience.

I have devoted my life’s work to reproductive and sexual health education and justice. Based in New Orleans, I work as a free lance educator, writer, activist and doula (birth worker).

My life’s journey, like yours, has crossed many roads and I spend a lot of time thinking about a) how did I end up here? And b) what was my motivation for the decisions I’ve made along the way.

Ever since I could remember, I’ve been in deep self-exploration. I travel the curves of my universe and imagine the spaces that I will stretch into. I am a dreamer. A futurist. A non-conformist. Using my imagination as a tool for resisting the dominant “normal” and applying lessons learned about my unique truths to my health practice.

I know, that since life is our most precious gift, and as far as we can be absolutely certain, it’s given to us to live but once, let us so live we will not regret years of useless virtue, inertia, timidity, and ignorance. So that in our last moments we can say: All my conscious life and energies have been dedicated to the most noble cause in the world, the liberation of the human mind and spirit. Through learning, let it begin with me.
