If you could invent a holiday, it would definitely involve ______________?

Dogs and Kayaks

What are your three favorite podcasts and/or books?

Devil at my Heels is probably my favorite book – it was inspiring to read how he kept his mind and faith strong throughout the many tribulations that came his way. I think Blue Like Jazz is my second favorite book. Armchair Experts with Dax Shepherd is for sure my favorite podcast, because not only is it fun to listen to but also can be really insightful!

What are you currently binge watching?

My answer to this is always The Office (until 2021 ☹)

What can you be found doing in your free time?

Practicing my Scattegories skills, walking my best bud Andy, or watching The Office

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

Every day is something completely new and different. Each day involves a mix of paperwork, phone calls, hard conversations, small celebrations, tears, and laughter – it’s sure to always keep you on your toes.

What’s the most inspiring part of your job?

The resiliency of my clients is what inspires me the most.

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

I went to MTSU to get both my undergrad and graduate degree in Social Work

What path led you to work at End Slavery Tennessee?

Pursuing an education and career in Social Work was an easy choice for me, as all I’ve ever wanted to do was to love the hurting, and support those who need it. I had written papers on human trafficking in both undergrad and grad school and ESTN was one of my top picks for an internship placement while I was in school. Soon after I earned my Masters, I saw that there was an opening at ESTN and knew right away that I had to apply. I’ve never looked back since!
