Meet Our Founder
Catherine was abused repeatedly from first grade on for nearly 20 years of her life. She spent most of the ages 12-17 living on the street. By age 15, she was lured into sex trafficking. After finding her own freedom from suffering and thriving in her late 40s, Catherine founded Stop Trafficking US, working to educate the public and offer hope for victims.
