BRENDON JOURNEY

Chief Executive Officer

     After several years of friendship and serving as a volunteer, Bren traveled to Cambodia to learn more. While learning from and serving survivors of trafficking here in the States and abroad, she realized how connected the world was. Brendon, with the help of others, developed one of the first kid friendly notebook curriculum's to prevent Human Trafficking in Cambodia. The curriculum continues to grow and expand as fellow workers share their wisdom and update as needed.

 

     Bren has over a decade of teaching, preach, and providing public health initiatives on outreaches to brothel workers. Brendon holds a Masters in Public Health from American Public University and a Bachelors in Biblical Studies from Southeastern University. She has served as Fundraiser, Research and Public Health Director, and former Vice-President of LOHI. She is honored to work again for her Khmer family and excited about what God has in store for Legacy of Hope International.
