ABOUT BUTTERFLY

personal transformation through comprehensive education

The Butterfly Academy is a health, self care & sex education organization based in NY’s Hudson Valley that’s dedicated to empowering kids and their parents around the realities of healthy relationships, diversity and body positivity with inclusivity, accurate information and age-appropriate honesty. T.B.A. was recently founded by Lo Sharkey, a veteran sex-&-relationship writer and educator who has, over the course of her 22-year career in the field, co-authored 8 books, penned columns for New York Magazine and The Guardian, written features for publications like Glamour and Men’s Journal, toured the country on behalf of NARAL Pro-Choice America, presented at colleges such as Colgate and Williams, been profiled in Time Magazine, and appeared on Oprah — all as an expert on the topic. Lo graduated with honors from Colgate University and is currently enrolled in the nationally accredited, graduate-level certification program at The Institute for Sexuality Education. She leads all Butterfly Academy workshops as both an educator and a parent. Dr. Elise Hagen, MD, is The Butterfly Academy’s dedicated volunteer health consultant.
