Her passion for this mission and desire to learn everything she could about the issue eventually brought her to Araminta Freedom Initiative, where she began working as a certified volunteer to awaken communities throughout our state to the issue of Child Sex Trafficking, which has helped prepare her for the intersection with survivors served by Araminta in restorative community. Laura currently serves as the Training and Education Coordinator, where she trains on issues of complex trauma and the impact on the survivors of sexual exploitation and human trafficking.
