After surviving one of the nation’s first and deadliest school shootings at age 15 I developed an untamed passion for social justice issues across the globe. It was in Cambodia while working in water purification and health education programs that I was first exposed to the underground world of human trafficking.
Upon returning to the states to continue my education I soon discovered that modern-day slavery was happening right in my own backyard…and from there the rest is history! In 2008 I received my Masters in Public Health, became a member of the Lexington, KY Human Trafficking Task Force and a few short months later found myself as the state director for the “Not For Sale Campaign” (www.notforsalecampaign.org).
I strongly believe that slavery can be re-abolished in my lifetime and that we as Christians must take a stand and move from awareness to ACTION!
