Welcome to my site! My name is Joy Westerman and I’m a Brooklyn-based project manager with a background in psychology and psychiatry research design. I’m also a writer and communications consultant working at the intersection of gender, sexuality, and psychology. On the side, I teach sewing lessons and host craft workshops.


From 2015-2018 I worked as the Sex Science Manager for the sex education brand Dr. Zhana, where I distilled findings from contemporary sex research into digestible copy for a mainstream audience. Currently, I serve in a research science capacity in the Psychiatry department at NYU Grossman School of Medicine.


Services available include:

  • Projects: Design; implementation; event production; content management

  • Writing: Editing; copywriting; ghostwriting; communications

  • Sewing: Beginner lessons; art commissions
