A graduate of an elite university with a master’s degree and a survivor of human trafficking, Rachel Thomas has extensive experience teaching, mentoring, training, curriculum writing, and public speaking. Her curriculum Ending The Game is used by over 170 facilitators in eight states and helps survivors break the bonds of attachment to traffickers. Ms. Thomas grew up in an upper class home and was sexually trafficked as a university student by a modeling agent who trafficked young women using threats, abuse and psychological manipulation.
