At Power Up Education, we wholeheartedly believe that every child should experience a healthy, happy childhood, free from sexual abuse and exploitation.

Self-esteem, body image, how we relate to others and our overall identity are all intertwined with our sexuality. We are all sexual beings yet, despite the importance of sexuality in our lives, we are often uncomfortable talking about these issues. 


It doesn’t have to be this way…and…that is precisely why we exist! We offer a variety of highly effective and customized sexual health tutorials and workshops designed to provide a FUN and RELAXED atmosphere where people can increase their knowledge, motivation and skills to achieve optimal sexual health.

We are dedicated and empathetic educators with an understanding of, and sensitivity to, the spectrum of needs from preschoolers to adults.


We believe that all people are sexual beings with a right to express their individual sexuality, however that may look.

Kerri is a dynamic speaker who helps bring clarity to the somewhat confusing, and overwhelming world of sexual education. She has educated and helped me navigate how to talk to my kids as they grow. I truly appreciate her straightforward, practical and humourous approach.
