Being a survivor of domestic and sexual violence myself, I want to put together a team dedicated to using their positions in the non-profit community here in DC to attract more survivors to come forward, tell their stories, receive the help they need, and combat the silent epidemic of violence towards women.

The Board will support the work of The Survivant Organization (TSO) and provide mission-based leadership and strategic governance.
