Advocacy is my passion. I went through trauma myself, without support. Now, I am able to take what I learned, through my own experience, and help victims become survivors while watching them walk their own journey.

"I now see how owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do."




Going through my own traumatic situations, I know the value advocacy brings to the healing process. It is a privilege to be a part of someone's life in this capacity, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to do this work.

"Love is boundary-less. Love should open doors, not limit opportunities." 



To me, doing this work, means helping people find their voice. We see people when they are going through some of the worst times of their lives. By helping them to navigate through the various systems and watching them learn who they are outside of their trauma is so empowering.

“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.” -CARL JUNG



I'm forever grateful to be a part of something meaningful, and bigger than myself. Because of my own past experiences, it is my goal, and drive, to provide guidance to others where permissible. 

"It is never too late to be what you might have been." -GEORGE ELIOT



My passion comes from surviving a lifetime of trauma where I was taught that asking for help was considered a weakness. The peace I fought for and finally achieved, convinced me my purpose was to help others survive and learn to fight their own monsters. These monsters are real, not under your bed or hiding in your closet with horns, but people you know, love or trust. 

"You're only given a little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it." -ROBIN WILLIAMS



Being an advocate means walking with a victim on their journey so that they never have to do it alone.  I can't magically fix anything, but I sure can make it a little easier by walking beside them and believing in them.

"Be a rainbow in someone else's cloud." -MAYA ANGELOU



It is not lost on me that I have the privilege to work in this capacity and I am incredibly thankful for the survivors I have come into contact with, the trust they share with me, and the personal growth I am able to make just in learning from them. Each day as I work alongside survivors while they grow and transform, I am reminded that there is strength in healing, power in finding your voice, and courage in leaning into your vulnerabilities. Advocacy also provides me the opportunity to support to the community as we try to make our world safer for the next generation.

Seeing parents and children connect and build relationships is a huge part of the reason I love this job. Knowing that I get to be part of this journey with each family as they navigate the next steps is everything. 

"There are far, far better things ahead than we leave behind." -C.S. LEWIS
