DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS

As a 3-time Domestic Violence survivor, Leah has experienced firsthand the trauma and devastation that abusive relationships cause. While each relationship was different, she was introduced to extreme physical violence in an adolescent dating relationship and subsequently experienced mental illness and drug addiction in the abusive relationships that followed. Those were the most trying times in her life, yet she survived each out of instinct and a will to claim her life back.

With safety as the main priority, Leah understands that it's not as simple as "just leaving" an abuser. There is extensive physical and mental anguish that one must overcome in order to live a healthy life after abuse. In addition, victim shame and blame is sadly prominent in society today. Through personal knowledge and education, she has brought her testimony to the ears of other Domestic Violence survivors as a community advocate and educator.

She is a testimony to other survivors who may feel lost, misunderstood, shamed and blamed! There IS recovery after abuse! It is Leah's heartfelt passion to help those who need to find their path to healing, life fulfillment and personal empowerment!
