After I won an unprecedented jury verdict for damages done to me online of $11.3M – this has brought me into a new chapter of my advocacy. As a parent advocate, I educate parents on a loosely regulated industry some call – teen help residential programs and schools. After a horrific experience with my own teenager, I become a voice to create awareness to others so they didn’t make the same mistakes I did.
Now with this new chapter of Internet Abuse and Cybersafety – I have meet with my Florida Senator several times and we just meet with our Congresswoman. I am very confident positive changes will be made to create a safer cyberspace – help to make people accountable – and reduce cyberbullying through new legislation.
My new position has put me in a public light, and I plan on using it to help others. I am contacted on a regular basis from victims of the Internet harassment as well as many media outlets. This is now a topic that is not going away anytime soon.
