As a founding staff member of My Life My Choice, Audrey was the first mentor of their vibrant mentorship program that exists today.
“Long term recovery means ongoing work. It is not something that happens overnight. I am recovering, but I have not arrived…There’s no end to it. To continue, I must do the work.”Audrey Morrisey, Co-Executive Director, My Life My Choice
Audrey now works as a trainer to develop their growing team and as a presenter to spread awareness of the details of human trafficking awareness and prevention.
Between 2019 and 2021, their programs have reached 800 girls locally and 3,000 girls nationally through partnerships.
This month, Audrey recommends Texans serving children in foster care and child welfare to learn the basics of commercial sexual exploitation. What may seem ordinary could very easily be a sign of this crime.
In honor of Human Trafficking Awareness Month, MLMC is working on a series of podcasts to spread awareness of their current projects and healing journeys. Visit their website to learn more.
