Series 2, Episode 8: Stand Up & Speak Up with Debby Montgomery Johnson and Chrissie Depre

How do you survive a home invasion and violent personal attack with your two infants in the next room? How do you move on after years of domestic violence and learn to TRUST again?

Chrissie Depre Stands Up and Speaks Up every day in her new position as Sexual Assault Response Team (SART)Coordinator/Advocate for Monroe County, FL and her job has just begun. She’s on a mission to make her painful past become her passion. Chrissie and Debby Montgomery Johnson have a candid conversation about family disfunction, being a teenage mother and wanting to get an education, being a rape victim and going through the trial, appeal, and sentencing only to have things overturned. Chrissie’s life is FULL NOW- she’s married, with children, earned her Masters in Public Administration, and is leading an organization that should have been around for her, back in the day. It’s time to tell the story of survivor to THRIVER. Dr. Tim McGuinness, Founder of The Society of Citizens Against Relationship Scams (SCARS) joins us to align our advocacy efforts. Online scamming victims live the shame/blame and unseen scars that DV victims live daily. Special tribute to Chrissie from her special husband – thanks for your Service to our country, Dennis!
