Soar On Eagles Wings
I've been married for over 25 years. I'm a Mom to three grown kids and grandma to one awesome 3-year-old! I am currently VP of Admin and Marketing at Bottoms School of Vocal Acoustics, www.bsva.net.
My sexual abuse started when I was around 5 years old until I was about 12 by multiple abusers and I was raped at age 17.
When I was 6 my aunt and I were sent to Sunday School on a bus. I believe God knew how desperately I needed His love as a foundation. As an adult, my heart has always been to teach children about Jesus, how much He loves them, and will always be there for them when others let us down!
I've felt for years that God would use me to be an advocate for child sex abuse prevention (CSA), but it is just recently that I've started my CSA education certification and started speaking. My mission is to educate adults and children about CSA prevention by providing training to the Colorado Region and Online Support Worldwide.
My over 28 years' children's advocacy and volunteer work include Children's Ministry, Acting Children's Minister & Sunday School Program Coordinator; Awana Commander including developing, training and co-directed the mid-week program for over 130 children; Volunteer for Judy's House for Grieving Children, Certified by The Dougy Center, OR., and was the Director of a Support Group for Grieving Children; MOPS Intl.

I have over 20+ years Entrepreneur experience in Start-Up Non-Profits & For-Profit Businesses; Networking & Marketing; Experience Creating, Developing, Training and Directing several Non-Profit Ministries including all aspects of recruiting, hiring, training, facilitating and fundraising.
