Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author, Theresa Flores is a survivor of human trafficking. Since she escaped the world of trafficking, she has become one of the country's most prominent advocates related to human trafficking awareness.
Ms. Flores has been a licensed social worker in Ohio for nearly 20 years. She received a Bachelors degree in Social Work from Ball State University in Indiana and a Masters degree in Counseling Education from the University of Dayton as a Human Development Specialist. She is featured by the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center Museum in a traveling exhibit entitled, Invisible Slavery.
As a much sought after international speaker and expert on human trafficking, Theresa was also appointed to the Ohio Attorney Generals Human Trafficking Commission in 2009 and has testified before the Ohio House and Senate in support of Human Trafficking Legislation. Her efforts were a major part of the success of SB235 being passed into law by Ohio Governor Strickland on December 23, 2010.
Along with her busy speaking schedule, Ms. Flores also runs a non-profit organization called S.O.A.P. (Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution) that engages people to help thwart the advances of teen prostitution and human trafficking in their local communities. Ms. Flores' story has been featured on MSNBC/The Today Show in an investigative series called Sex Slaves: The Teen Trade.
