PhD Student
Human Sexuality


Sally Johnston received her MA in Special Education and Infant Mental Health certification from the University of Washington in Seattle. After several years working at the Institute for Learning and Brain Sciences (ILABS) as a child development research, she began her doctoral work studying Infant Mental Health at UW in the Department of Nursing Sciences. As her research interests evolved, she decided to follow her passions and continue her doctoral career in the Human Sexuality department at CIIS. Her current research interests include alternative sexual/romantic relationship structures including all forms of consensual non-monogamies (CNM), sexual scripts that prioritize pleasure and re-conceptualize desire and attraction, and, as always, sexual education curricula that promote sexual literacy and sexual pleasure across the lifespan.
