At the age of 17, Angela was abducted at knifepoint outside a suburban shopping mall. She was assaulted by a repeat sex-offender on parole for murder. Eventually released by her attacker, she then suffered at the hands of authorities who subjected her to scrutiny, blame and additional victimization.

In 2001, Angela founded a multinational not-for-profit organization, PAVE: Promoting Awareness, Victim Empowerment with over 50 chapters and affiliates.
