Alisa Bernard is the contracted Survivor Advocacy Coordinator for the Organization for Prostitution Survivors (OPS) where she created a new model 12 class mentoring series for survivors of commercial sexual exploitation (CSE). She is a candidate for the Masters of Public Administration degree from the University of Washington’s Evan’s School. Since exiting prostitution she has advised to, developed content for, and provided training to numerous organizations and agencies across the US and sits on King County’s Ending Exploitation Collaborative team. She uses her lived experiences of CSE, teen homelessness, domestic violence and childhood sexual abuse as a lens to look through and advise public and private agencies working against CSE.
