Growing with Mx. T is solely run by Skye Tooley.

Consulting with Skye
Skye is available to consult on how to create safe, inclusive environments for LGBTQ+ learners and adults. Each consult will be based on the clients needs, questions, and wonderings. When scheduled, the client will receive a google form to fill out with a list of explicit questions to better serve the client. Each consult can be between 30 minutes to 2 hours.
Skye specializes in caregiver support and education, but also supports businesses in how they can make their space more inclusive for the queer community.
