Ending sexual violence starts with educating ourselves.
The #MeToo movement provides us a unique opportunity to hear survivor experiences and learn how we can be part of the solution. A survivor, speaker, and author, my personal mission is to break the "code of silence" surrounding sexual assault and abuse. I focus on preventing violence through trainings, lectures, articles, and survivor awareness.
If you are looking to educate your group or become active in sexual assault prevention, I want to hear from you.

Founder of SAAN (SAANcommunity.org), a national network of sexual assault advocates committed to ending violence through education, policy, and awareness

I loved your presentation yesterday! I am so grateful for the work you do and that our students were given the opportunity to visit so many issues with you. You interwove your own story in our cultural context with issues so relevant to us. I loved the way you invited and allowed us to breathe and reflect in a way that did not overwhelm but allowed us to enter huge, tender and tough issues.
Barbara Lamagna, Professor
I cannot thank you enough for coming into my class today. You are a walking miracle in my opinion! I am grateful for the privilege of hearing your story and hope that you will consider returning to us.
