Ashley and I have traveled the world together, meeting with survivors, at risk youth, trafficked girls, doctors, presidents and the many heros working in the trenches to serve the world's marginalized. During this 2 part podcast we dive deep into some of those experiences, the exposure of Harvey Weinstein, her more recent experiences in the Congo, her life changing tragic accident and of course we talk about her personal journey of finding sexual wellness after sexual trauma.
