Biography

I have 10+ years of professional experience working in the non-profit sector as a development specialist, program director, volunteer coordinator and consultant for organizations that cover issues involving human trafficking, domestic violence and sexual assault. I often speak at events and conferences where I share my passion and commitment to combating social injustices that plague our world. I currently hold a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and one in Political Science from Utah Valley University, and a Master of Public Administration from Brigham Young University.
My most recent adventures have been working as a victim advocate for the Utah County Sheriff?s Office, a professor for UVU teaching a course on Human Trafficking and Rape Crisis Coordinator for the Center for Women and Children In Crisis. I currently am a member of the UCASA board and volunteer for Utah County Sheriff's office as an instructor for their R.A.D. women program. I find working with individuals in trauma to be incredibly sacred. I believe everyone should have someone that they can go to for help, support and love.
I am no stranger to the global community. I?ve started traveling to Ukraine as a young girl to visit family and to volunteer at orphanages. I have continued doing humanitarian aid in different countries. I?ve traveled to over 20 countries. My experience abroad has led me to fall in love with cultures and people through service.
