Considered one of Canada’s foremost experts on child and adolescent sexuality, Nadine Thornhill has been helping people make positive, informed choices about their bodies, identity, and relationships since 2006.
Nadine’s experience as a sex educator is vast and varied. She got her start as a workshop facilitator at Venus Envy, a sex-positive boutique in Ottawa, Ontario. She went on to become Program Director for Planned Parenthood Ottawa’s sex education drama troupe, Insight Theatre. A few years later, Nadine moved to San Francisco to study at The Institute For The Advanced Study Of Human Sexuality, earning a certification in Sex Education, followed by a Doctorate of Education.
Upon returning to Canada, Nadine established a sex education practice in her hometown of Toronto, Ontario. She’s since worked with institutions such as The University of Toronto, The Center For Sex Education, George Brown College, The EDGE Program, The University of Western Ontario, The Unitarian Universalist Association, Carleton University, The 519, and the Toronto District School Board. Nadine has taught hundreds of people in private sessions, online events, conference presentations, and speaking engagements.

In her spare time Nadine enjoys escape rooms, weekend hikes with her partner and son, and watching bad television with her very large fur baby, Albus Dumblecat.
