Presently, as the Central Oregon Regional Director for Oregonians Against Trafficking Humans (OATH), which is an extension of the Oregon Human Trafficking Task Force, Nita focuses on helping victims/survivors of human trafficking and raising awareness about modern-day slavery.
Nita has worked with victims/survivors of domestic violence for many years. She specialized in various womens issues, through teaching and counseling in churches and shelters.
Nita began studying about human trafficking/modern-day slavery in 2006. The more she studied, the more she knew she couldn’t sit on the sidelines while these atrocities were taking place all over the world, including in her own backyard. As she networks with other national and international abolitionist organizations, she brings to the table a deep understanding of a broad scope of women’s issues, as well as a compassion for victims and a determination to link arms with other abolitionists in order to end modern-day slavery.
Nita has worked for more than twenty years in business. Also, a former Associate Pastor, she holds a Master’s Degree in Theology with a concentration in Women’s Concerns.
In her leisure times, she loves being with her family. She is an avid Major League Baseball
fan and also enjoys fishing, hiking, biking, snowshoeing, and enjoying all the beauty that Central Oregon has to offer.
She has an enthusiasm for life and is known as a powerful motivator who will impact any group. Nita is available to present to groups everywhere to heighten awareness, answer questions and help stop human trafficking/modern-day slavery.
