In 2016, Abby came on staff as Program Director and currently serves as City Director. Her years of experience in both non-profit work and walking alongside survivors has helped her insight and made her passionate about this cause when it comes to Human Trafficking.

Jasmine holds various meritorious service awards including the Army Commendation Medal awarded to her by the Secretary of the Army for three consecutive years in a row.
