Before becoming a Hoosier, Morgan was born in Somerset, Kentucky, and then was adopted and raised in Corydon, Indiana. She completed her Bachelor of Science Degree in International Studies with a minor in Gender Studies from Hanover College in 2013. She is completing her Master in Social Work at the University of Louisville. Morgan began working with those experiencing complex trauma as an AmeriCorps member in New Orleans, Louisiana. Here, she assisted the Institute of Women and Ethnic Studies in both their work in HIV/AIDS outreach, as well as educating youth on healthy relationships and the risks of teen pregnancy. Following her time with AmeriCorps, she moved back to Louisville, Kentucky, and began work as a crisis and residential counselor with the Center for Women and Families in Southern Indiana and Kentucky. Here, Morgan worked for one year with those experiencing or impacted by intimate partner violence and sexual violence by means of the crisis hotline calls and supporting those needing shelter assistance. She then took a position as a family advocate for one year in the same agency and focused on outreach with counties surrounding the Louisville, Kentucky area. This included court advocacy, child advocacy, and hospital advocacy as well as case management. Following her time there, Morgan then served as a family case manager for the Department of Child Services in Floyd County, Indiana. Morgan served as an ongoing case worker and primarily concentrated on reuniting families. Before beginning her work with ICESA, Morgan served as Region 10 Coalition Coordinator with the Indiana Trafficking Victims Assistance Program (ITVAP). She provided education to communities, service providers, law enforcement, educators, healthcare professionals, youth and many more on the importance of recognizing and reporting human trafficking. In addition, she provided referral and case management for cases involving youth who were 21 and under and experiencing human trafficking. She is currently co-chair of the Southern Indiana Human Trafficking Coalition, serves on the National Human Trafficking and Disability Working Group, and is co-founder of the Student Advocates for Exploited and Trafficked Youth (S.A.F.E.T.Y.) Program©. Morgan’s passion for working with those who experience sexual violence and exploitation comes from her lived experiences, as well as her time spent in South Africa and Turkey where she focused on issues facing women in political, personal, and socioeconomical ways. Morgan feels strongly in addressing issues that intersect, and holding systems accountable that maintain the presence and victimization of sexual violence. Morgan is very excited for this opportunity to work with a passionate and hard-working team at ICESA!
