Victim Impact Advisor

Survivor Voice 

I am a Colorado Native. I am the proud mother of 2 healthy children who are my world. I grew up in a “normal” middle class home, with both of my parents being prominent members in society. Despite my typical upbringing I was still gang trafficked at age 15 for 2 ½ years with my best friend. I was arrested when I was 17 and put on diversion; it literally saved my life. I was able to graduate high school and get placed in my first real job. When I completed my program, I went back for my best friend and we ran. However, because we had no real sense of how to survive or handle our trauma, we ended up in some bad situations. I got pregnant as a teenager and had my child. Sadly, right before my child’s first birthday I lost my best friend to suicide. I volunteered to take this position as victim impact advisor to speak for the victims who can’t speak for themselves. To be a voice to the needs of victims from when they first get out, focusing on direct help and needs in order for them to succeed so they don’t have the urge to go back. I have worked with survivors for 5 years. In this time, I have helped, I have also been triggered myself. I have come to realize that the best place for myself in order to stay in a personal healthy space for my family is to speak on the area of leaving the life and how to acclimate back into society for their potential of success. I take this as my own personal journey in continued mental healing and giving back in a way I wish someone had given back to me. I look forward to helping young women go From Silenced To Saved.
