“Human trafficking is epidemic. I know. My own family forced me to suffer that fate for the first 17 years of my life. I found a path leading to a law degree, business success, personal fulfillment and to inspiring others. The truth and reality of my experiences are the foundation of the insights I share.”

"Force of nature" meets "fountain of joy". That's the first impression everyone has of my sweet, ferocious friend, Andi Buerger. I'm so honored to share part of her story with you; and so grateful for the opportunity our family has had to be partners in her passion project from its beginnings in 2008.

There is no story so hopeless it can't be redeemed.
