Dr. Hancock (she/her) is a Jesus-following, Caucasian, straight, cisgender woman - among other things less relevant to this page. It is her hope that any privilege from these parts of her identity or her position as a professor at a university is used to increase understanding and equitable treatment of marginalized communities, without taking away opportunities for voices of LGBTQIA+ people to be heard.

In addition to donating time and resources beyond those required for her employment, at least half of her honoraria and royalties are donated to organizations supporting trans and non-binary individuals, such as:
