Survivor Advocate and Consultant

Speaker Bio

Suzanne Skirvin was born and raised in Southern California. She grew up in the foster care system. At 13 years old she was adopted by her parents Steve and Kirsten. Suzanne Graduated from Gilbert High School. She went on to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. She began to date and that is when she met her trafficker. Suzanne was a victim for some time and was able to escape. When she returned with her family, she discovered she was pregnant. She is now a mother to her amazing son. She loves being a mother. She then pursued a career in law enforcement. She has since taken a break from law enforcement but has continued her education in international securities studies. She is currently working with a few non-profits to bring awareness and resources to survivors of Human-Trafficking. She is also working on her book when she has some free time. Her long-term mission is to bring awareness to human trafficking. She hopes that one day this nation is united together to combat this horrible crime and bring it to an end. Suzanne states “œEven though I have escaped from my trafficker and have gone on to pursue a career and I have a beautiful son to tend to and I continue my journey of healing. I still cannot help myself but to think every single night as I lay my head down on my comfortable pillow and lay in my clean sheets knowing I am safe and able to go to bed. For a split second I must stop and think of all the women and men that are out there who are not safe, who need my help and need to have the opportunity to know what it feels like to feel safe. I long to make that an opportunity for everyone.” That is Suzanne's mission.
