She is a survivor of labor trafficking. Being able to access therapy programs and self-care, she  had a 17 year long career in the biopharmaceutical industry & graduated from UOR with a BA in Business Management focused on Industry Analysis.

The goal of free coalition Inc. is to have a safe home providing safety for survivors of sexual exploitation and Human Trafficking. She worked at San Diego youth and community services teen pregnancy program for at root risk female youth and was a counselor at Phoenix House a program for youth addicted to drugs.


LaVaughn was born in New York but has lived in San Diego where she became a survivor of much trauma. She has always believed in giving back to this population, because she knows that those experiences do not need to define a persons life or future. With help support in guidance survivors can overcome their past and not be ashamed of it. And in fact they can use that strength to propel themselves forward to their greatest dreams, aspirations and achievements.
