Laurie Swink is Selah Freedom's Co-Founder and Educator/Trainer of Curriculum and Core Values. Laurie has a bachelor's degree in special education and has 30+ years teaching 1st-12th grade. In 2011, Laurie’s heart was moved to establish a residential home when she realized a survivor coming out of sex trafficking was only at the beginning of their journey not the end. She oversees the Selah Freedom programming while training other organizations to build a sustainable and safe residential program for sex trafficking survivors through organizational mentorship. Laurie considers her work with the survivors to be a privilege and an honor.
