Four Pounds of Pressure

A Memoir of Rape, Survival, and Unleashing the Lioness

Did you know that four pounds of pressure is the average trigger pull of a 9 mm hand gun? 

Release date for memoir: July 12th, 2021

My story is much more complex than simply surviving rape. It is a story of being held hostage at gunpoint in my home, being raped multiple times, and ensuring my son stayed sleeping in his room for the entire five hours he was there...

 

I have been targeted, terrorized, and wronged too many times by means of sexual violence and harassment. Rape culture needs to end! People need to be made aware of and educated on rape culture so we can bring it to an end. So here I am, stepping up to advocate against sexual violence with my experiences and what I have learned from them. I am taking back my power and body, and I'm here to empower others to do the same.  


I am a survivor of rape and sexual assault, an advocate, an activist, a member of the Survivor Advisory Group to the Governor of Minnesota, a nurse, a writer, a blogger, a mom, and as I have recently discovered - a lioness. 

 

I am honored to have you here.
