Chief Executive Officer

Survivor Leader

A survivor of human trafficking, Kayla has found her lane in the anti-trafficking movement as a connector in the community. She believes that survivors hold the power of warriors and wants to create an “army” of survivors that can break the status quo. Building a network of survivors who are economically independent and collaborate together is a key piece of her vision. Being able to provide survivors not only with resources but actionable steps that puts the power back into their hands to create a new narrative.

Kayla sits on the Board of Directors for both Duke University's “Last Girl Project” as well as Angel Healing, an organization in Florida building a restorative care spa.  Her educational background includes Marketing and Communications from West Virginia University with plans to return to school focusing on psychosexual neuroscience. 


In her spare time she is designing a fashion line that incorporates the anti-human trafficking agenda, one piece of which was worn by a Miss Face of Humanity finalist.

Housing Program Director - DE

Chief Information Officer

Survivor Leader

Jenny's passion for her mission is evident in her commitment to combating human and labor trafficking. Her exploitation, which began in her formative years and led to a promising turning point in her adulthood, has been marked by resilience and determination. Despite facing numerous challenges, including homelessness, incarceration, and barriers to employment, Jenny's passion has only grown stronger. She is now the Chief Information Officer and Housing Program Director of the Delaware Chapter, where she uses her empathetic spirit and personal experiences to guide survivors toward realizing their true potential and preventing revictimization.

Jenny has engaged with and successfully completed over 23 programs, obtaining certificates from each one along her path to freedom. She has not only found freedom but also love and support within her marriage. Her achievements continue to grow through her success as the Founder and CEO of Spirit of Life LLC, as well as successfully building her dream home alongside her husband from the ground up. Jenny and her husband's hearts are worldwide, and one of their biggest projects is the development of a water company to provide accessibility for low-income families in Guatemala. With Survivor Ventures, Jenny has found a permanent off-ramp where she can achieve her dream: breaking the cycle of generational trafficking within her own family and others.

As a wife and mother to two children and three grandchildren, Jenny spends much of her time mending the bond that was taken from her and her children during her victimization. She is working on her memoir/self-help questionnaire book and dedicates time to herself through holistic forms of therapy such as grounding, meditation, and emotional, social, and spiritual well-being.

To help Jenny and all survivors break these systematic barriers, you can find more information on their latest news page.
