I am a date rape survivor who has successfully completed counseling/treatment for PTSD and seen my attacker through two trials resulting in convictions for sexual assault and rape and him being sentenced to Life in prison. He is described as one of the worst date rapists in this country.
Since 2009 I have spoken about my story to victim advocacy training groups, on college campuses and Take Back the Night events in hopes that it can help others heal.
I have been interviewed and appeared in a one-hour ABC News special, an Investigation Discovery Channel documentary episode of "Very Bad Men" and an episode of E! True Hollywood Story "Social Media Nightmares". Each focusing on my attacker and my experiences from the date rape through the counseling, trials and what's on the other side of it.
I am a member of the RAINN Speakers Bureau and the UC Irvine Speakers Bureau and a Women's Media Center SheSource expert.
My goal is to continue to speak out on social media and public events whenever I am needed. This is a direct reaction to all the help and support that was provided to me. I also want to be a voice for others that, for whatever reason, can't speak out.
