Meet Our Staff

A Message from the Executive Director

I personally became involved with AAFV after my own realization that I had been victimized. I was raised to be a “good wife” and thought that enduring years of verbal, emotional financial and spiritual abuse was what I was supposed to do.

I had followed very good examples set by my Grandmothers. When my ex-husband was sentenced to prison for white-collar financial crime, I came to realize, after attending a strongly suggested conference on domestic abuse by my mother, my children and I were victims of abuse.

After this realization and seeking personal help, I knew I needed to help others. I was drawn back to Hope’s Door from the conference I attended and became a volunteer. That journey has continued and led me to the position of Executive Director.
