Marjorie is a survivor of many forms of exploitation and aims to be an example of hope and encouragement for other survivors. Her nonprofit organization, The Well Path, provides much needed healing and resources for victims of human trafficking in San Diego. She also oversees a safe house for survivors through another organization as their Director of Client Services. Marjorie has made it her mission to help bridge resources for human trafficking victims seeking stable housing and safe exit from exploitation. With most programs not offering emergency resources, she is committed to making that change through her organization. The Well Path has provided over 50 nights for victims to safely exit the sex trade and provides ongoing assistance to ensure lower recidivism back to prostitution. Marjorie is furthering her work to break the cycle of exploitation in San Diego with The Well Path set to open a new safe housing program later this year.
