About Me

Hi I am the CEO/President and Founder of House of Hope and Hope Horse Farm... I am  a two time  survivor of Domestic Violence and marital rape. I was hospitalized in ICU for a month and half the last time and almost died. I was shot, stabbed, had a left brain occipital trauma and injury and severe bone breaks and basically looked like a mack truck had hit me. It was a long road to recovery, but I made it and I want to help all the victims and survivors out there that have been in domestic violence , rape and all issues encompassed by domestic violence. I think that it is important to give back to all those who are where I once was and who always be survivors of domestic violence!!

I am in the middle of finishing my Masters in Public Administration and I have my Bachelors in Criminal Justice.  This shelter and horse farm are my dream and to help as many victims and survivors as I can!! I want to give back all the help I got to survive domestic violence to all the women, children and men who are going through or who have survived domestic violence. With Gods help and blessings we will blessed to do this for many years to come!

Our Board member's to date are:

Jennifer-Rose-Bryden-Pelletier- Vice President/ Computer  Website Design/ PC Security

Donald Fletcher -Vice President & Head of Security  (U.S Army Veteran & Paratrooper/Extreme Home Makeover Edition Security.)
