Founder & Executive Director
Lisa ran away at the age of 14, ending up a victim of sex trafficking. Needing shelter and the means to survive, she did whatever it took to get by. The next four years of her life consisted of group homes, couch surfing, and living on the streets. The culmination of these events has inspired a lifelong dedication to helping future generations navigate the treacherous waters of sexual predators. Lisa has become a catalyst in defending and inspiring thousands of youth in a variety of positive ways, including supervising a home for troubled teenage girls and house parenting group homes for foster children, in addition to developing and conducting comprehensive community prevention education on relationships and predator prevention for 20 years, training youth and adults including, volunteers, parents, educators, and other community members.
