Ms. Norris is the founder of Rescuing Hope, a role she has held since 2015. In her eight years at the helm, she has dedicated herself to training first responders and collaborating with ally support advocates to assist survivors of sex trafficking. Her work involves strategizing with program developers to focus efforts effectively and providing essential training to address potential issues. Ms. Norris leads staff meetings and disseminates best practices nationwide. She also engages with various organizations throughout the state to garner support for her cause. Prior to founding Rescuing Hope, Ms. Norris worked with student ministry at the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, where she began her journey into advocacy and empowerment.

Ms. Norris is recognized as an expert in enlightenment, education, and empowerment, praised for achieving a high level of expertise in these areas. Her career is marked by a commitment to these principles and a dedication to making a tangible difference in the lives of those affected by sex trafficking.

The educational background of Ms. Norris includes a Master of Education in early childhood education and a Bachelor of Science in child development and family relations, both from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where she completed her studies in 1989 and 1988, respectively.
