International Worker with Remember Nhu in Bolivia

I graduated from Ashland University in 2013 with a double major in Criminal Justice and Religion and a minor in Spanish. While at AU, I had the privilege of interning at Ashland County Juvenile Detention Center and I was also hired as a correctional officer while I was still a student. I gained real world experience, a deeper understanding of the Juvenile Criminal Justice System, and invaluable techniques such as situation de-escalation and conflict resolution.

Since graduation I have been working with Remember Nhu, an international  NGO (non-governmental organization) that works to prevent human trafficking. I have worked in Thailand, Cambodia, and I am now serving in Bolivia as an International Worker.  I work with children who are at-risk for entering the sex trade which is a job with many facets. My job roles range from mentoring young girls to meeting with Bolivia’s “Children and Family Services” to working with local school where our children attend. I especially am appreciative of the core CJ classes such as Sociology, Psychology, and Criminology which have given me a foundation to analyze situations and gain a deeper understanding of people groups and populations.
