Christine is passionate about prevention, advocacy, and awareness of the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children.  She believes that no matter what has been done to a person or what they have experienced, everyone can receive healing and restoration. 



Christine is a survivor of the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children(CSEC).  Christine was commercially sexually exploited by a family member. Familial trafficking is among the common forms of exploitation in the United States. As a child, Christine lived at home, went to school, and lived as a child who was commercially sexually exploited. There were no “normal childhood experiences”. She was not seen or heard in her community. “No one was ever there to protect me or saw what was going on.  If we educate the community and know how to respond, we are better able to protect the most vulnerable among us”.  Christine is a presenter and trainer that will engage your heart and mind. 





All people have intrinsic worth and value. Each person has gifts, talents, and abilities and should be able to be loved and valued within their community free from exploitation.
