Fractali is this site's webmistress and columnist. She graduated with a Bachelor's in Biology and Psychology in 2002, with honors on her thesis, which examined the effect self-esteem has on rape myth acceptance in individuals who identify as female. She has close to twenty years of experience working with vulnerable populations, including survivors of domestic violence and foster children who have suffered abuse and neglect. Passionate about advocacy and politics, one of her proudest accomplishments was serving as a volunteer with Hillary Clinton's 2016 Presidential campaign. In her spare time, she writes fanfiction, cosplays, and is being judged by her cat, who generally disapproves of anything that doesn't involve treats and/or feather toys.

Please report any technical issues to her at
