Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.

What is human trafficking? You might be surprised to learn that there is so much more to it than what you see portrayed in the movies and media. Also, it isn’t only happening in the seedy underbelly of society. It’s happening in our communities much more often than you might think.
Alexandra Stevenson joins me to share her own experience as a human trafficking victim and why she is now working to educate people everywhere about the realities of human trafficking and sexual assault. She also co-founded Uprising in Wyoming, The Laughing Survivor, and is in the process of writing her first book.
Alexandra and I spoke about some pretty heavy subjects for this episode. Everything from her personal story of being groomed and sexually assaulted to then finding herself in the middle of being trafficked. Her story is incredibly powerful and I’m so happy she joined me to share it.
We also talk about how we can talk to our children about consent, what consent really looks like, what trafficking is, and so much more. No matter what age or stage your children are in, Alexandra truly provides some invaluable insights and how to keep them as safe as you possibly can.
In this episode, we discuss:
When sexual empowerment is really sexual exploitation
What human trafficking really is and who are real players
Why consent is so important and ways to move from a “no means no” culture to “yes means yes”
Practical tips and advice for introducing cell phones to your children and how keep them safe
