I am originally from San Diego, California where I lived up until college, when I moved to Chicago, Illinois to attend Wheaton College to study Secondary Education in History. I moved to Knoxville and joined the Raising a Voice team in 2019.
I work as the Director of International Operations and oversee our RAV Fellowship- a program where students will intern with us for nine months, studying discipleship, before traveling overseas to work with our international partners. I love my job because we’re creating opportunities for people to get hands-on experience in anti-trafficking work and see what it looks like to be in ministry full-time. My vision for RAV is to see the organization grow into a bigger umbrella organization, with multiple international partners all working towards impacting anti-trafficking efforts, both domestically and overseas.
But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, he who formed you, O Israel:“Fear not, for I have redeemed you I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.
