THIS IS MY STORY
In June of 2002, I was 15 years old. My path in life was about to take a turn and I had no idea.
I was kidnapped from my friend's front yard by a man I didn't know. A serial killer who would have made me another one of his victims.
BUT. I. SURVIVED.
While he was sleeping, I escaped my captor's restraints and went to law enforcement to tell them my story.
I later found out he had murdered at least three girls before me.
I survived to spread hope and encouragement to other survivors. To remind them that they are not alone and that they are stronger than what happened to them.
We are who we are because of what happened but we are not defined by it.
I currently use my traumatic experience as well as my years of work in law enforcement to speak to groups around the country. I tell my story, help to educate those who work with victims, and empower individuals to be the best version of themselves they can be, regardless of their past.
