Currently, I am working as the Interim Coordinator for the Central Illinois Human Trafficking Task Force. Through this task force, multiple agencies have come together to raise awareness of human trafficking, better identify victims, provide quality services to victims, and effectively prosecute the traffickers. This task force is the first task force in Central Illinois and originated in March 2017. This June, I received a national Department of Justice Director’s Award for my work on the human trafficking task force. We have conducted trainings for different disciplines such as law enforcement, healthcare providers, prosecutors, etc. My career goal is to become a Victim Specialist after Grad School and to specialize in human trafficking.

I started competing in pageants because I wanted to share my platform, gain more confidence, and surround myself with empowering women.
