What Else She Said

I think that sometimes people think I'm a complete pain in the butt because I'm constantly raising issues or challenging power hierarchy or people's assumptions about themselves or the world, and I think that in that way, it's a 'both/and.' I'm a pain in the butt, and sometimes also as my boss sometimes calls me -- Jiminy Cricket. And I actually had a client the other day [who] said that I was her guardian angel and I loved that image that when she's in a difficult spot that she just feels that somewhere in her being that I'm there. So Jiminy Cricket/guardian angel.
