What does your job look like day-to-day?

I communicate regularly with our Community Group leaders to help them with their meetings and events, manage requests for us to speak to various groups/organizations around Nashville, lead our Speakers Bureau, keep our office supplies stocked, manage the mail, and welcome visitors to our Care Center at the front desk.

What’s the most inspiring part of your job?

As the Community Coordinator, I work primarily with volunteers and general community members. I am always so inspired by the dedication of our volunteers, and the passion I see in others when they learn about human trafficking and want to get involved.

Where did you go to college? What did you get your degree in?

I graduated from Belmont University with a degree in Songwriting.

What path led you to work at End Slavery Tennessee?

I’ve always been a singer/songwriter, but I’ve never enjoyed doing the marketing and promotion necessary to make it in the music business. I wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself, and dedicate my time to helping others. I learned about the issue of modern slavery and sex trafficking in the summer of 2016, and began volunteering for End Slavery TN the following year. I became full time in February of 2018 and am so grateful to be here!
