I have first-hand experience, on what it takes to survive an abusive situation with children. And understand how critical it is to escape, with knowledge, victims' rights, and critical resources to help keep the survivors alive and safe, after they escape. After my kids and I successfully escaped. I had become a full-time volunteer victim advocate for the Marion County district attorney office in Salem Oregon, for 2.5 years from 2007 to 2010, and 6 months at Marion County Parole and Probation. And been advocating and helping victims ever since.
Each Year we Bring Awareness to Domestic Violence. By Providing a Kayak Awareness in October. In hope we can raise money for nonprofit: Center for Hope and Safety in Salem Oregon. 100% of the proceed goes straight to the organization. I know first-hand, how helpful Center for Hope & Safety help me and my kids. And how life changing getting these resources and help. Had literally (saved) my kids and I. We would not be alive today. Ever since I got out. I have done everything I can to still advocate for the ones that remain silence. I use my businesses to help give back to the community to give back. I provide lots of free kayaking excursions for individuals suffering from trauma, PTSD, Anxiety, Stress, Cancer. To help give them healing. Kayaking has been extremely therapeutic for me. And give others the opportunity to experience kayaking for free. To try to help them. I own multiple businesses, a use both and talent to help fund raiser for other nonprofits by donating my services to their fundraisers as well. We are all here to help one and another. I truly believe this. And so thankful to have the life I have now. Would not been possible without outreach programs like Center for Hope & Safety and other resources. (THANK YOU)!
