Kathy believes we can one day live in a world where people value one another, that one individual’s freedom never trumps another’s, and no one drives in the turning lane…well maybe not that last one.
A gifted speaker, consultant, mentor, author and survivor of human trafficking, Kathy works tirelessly to communicate the truths of trafficking in America, having trained thousands of medical professionals, law enforcement, community service providers, and faith-based communities both in the U.S. and abroad. Her ability to illuminate truth in a palatable, engaging manner leads the listener to heightened understanding, inspiring action.
Kathy joined RBI in 2014 and serves as Director of Elevate Academy and Lead Mentor, where she empowers other survivors on their journeys to obtain fullness of freedom. She serves on the board of Into the Light, is a member of the National Survivor Network, the Survivor Leader Institute, and the Survivor Alliance.
She was instrumental in changing the human trafficking legislation in her state by testifying several times before the Arkansas Congress, resulting in the passage of three new laws. Kathy is a consultant for the Department of Homeland Security’s Blue Campaign and various anti-trafficking organizations.
There is much to be found in her wheelhouse, ultimately, though, her heart beats for helping people understand each other, which fosters empathy and a foundation for unity. She and her husband, Keith love spending time with their family, off-roading, and traveling this beautiful world. Her next big goal is jumping out of a plane.
