Wallace is excited to carry over her on-going experience as a domestic violence investigator and advocate to her role as a board member for Steps to Hope, she said. She believes that every survivor’s story is unique, and that the healing and support we provide must be thoughtfully shaped to meet their needs and in their own time.
