HOW DID YOU GET INTO THE TRAINING SPACE AND WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT IT?
PROTECTION FROM ABUSE guides hundreds of women each year on critical safety issues affecting their very life and health. However, there is a considerable gap between receiving guidance and someone’s ability to reliably execute upon that guidance. Therefore, it became critical for my organization to enter the training space to bridge that gap, and as all things concerning the Organization, I lead from the front. It excites me to know that a single safety tip or strategy can be the tool in a someone’s personal toolbox that might one day save their life or help them avoid victimization.
