Testimonials:

  • “My abuser was finally held accountable for so many things that were otherwise going unheard and unrecognized. With Cari’s help, I was able to focus on healing through the PTSD I developed, rather than always living in fear that my education and my career would continue to be threatened. Prior to Cari’s help, I felt completely helpless and alone in my fight in asking my university to help protect me from continuous abuse and misconduct. I am toward the final stages of gaining my doctorate and in the last year was hired as a teaching fellow for another university. Had Cari not been such an incredible advocate, I don’t know if I would be where I am at this moment.”
  • “Cari saved our family. Period. Without Cari, we would be one of the many many families who carry the burden of sexual assault on their dysfunctional shoulders for the rest of our lives. Instead, we are an informed, happy, resilient family.”
  • “I would highly recommend Cari because of her passion for the rights of survivors, her compassion to her clients, her knowledge of Title IX and all laws pertaining to social justice, her dogged work ethic, and her connections to other experts in the field.”
