I'm a lived experience expert consultant in familial, cult, labor trafficking, and the sex industry. I have received three years of training in master’s level counseling psychology coursework and as a lived experience expert has provided consultations to organizations such as Polaris, Dressember, Roller Skate to Liberate and Survivor Alliance.
With over 10 years of experience in the Anti-Human Trafficking Movement, I have performed research, created a one-of-a-kind program evaluation for direct service providers, and participated in advisory boards, trainings, and panels. As a lived experience expert holding diverse experience expertise and education, I offer a unique perspective on the multilayered experiences of exploitation, complex PTSD, and evaluation. My passion is focused on research and program evaluation to help reduce client harm and increase the trauma-informed health and growth of organizations.
Social media consultant
I value love, patience and kindness. When it is hard to practice my values, I am grateful for the People who honor my humanity. I am an aspiring portrait artist, and an activist for sexually exploited youth. I am an anti-oppression researcher, who follows frameworks like critical race theory, cultural responsive pedagogy and intersectionality. I believe art activism and the youth are the movement for social change needed to honor the humanity of the global majority.
Mary Bull (MPH)
I'm always trying to be in alignment with my 'purpose'. I started my academics by obtaining a Bachelor's Degree in Biomedical Science and eventually transitioned into getting my MPH from Boston University. Once I learned how nuanced and prevalent CSE is, the next natural step felt to get involved as an ally. I am most passionate about debunking myths about CSE and ensuring trauma-informed, evidence-based practices are being implemented. I'm a true believer that evaluation is art with evidence. I am also a Mother to the sweetest baby girl.

Media Manager for Mosaic
As a creative and versatile individual, I specialize in both graphic design and administrative work. My academic background includes a Bachelor's Degree in General Psychology, which has granted me valuable insights into the struggles faced by those who have survived exploitation. Having lived in the Philippines, I have witnessed the pervasive issue of exploitation firsthand. As a committed advocate, I aim to raise awareness about this critical concern through my work, with the ultimate goal of creating a positive impact and effecting meaningful change.
