Vanessa Russell | Founder, Love Never Fails
Vanessa has spent over 20 years leading technology and sales organizations in the IT industry. Since 2000’ she has also taught dance to hundreds of children. In 2010 one of her 15 year-old students was sold into human trafficking; thankfully she was eventually located and is being restored. But Vanessa found that many US born women, men and children are trapped in modern day slavery, so she launched Love Never Fails, a non-profit that restores, educates, and protects people at risk of or currently being exploited. Vanessa believes that human trafficking can be solved through love expressed in prayer, safe housing, mentoring, job training, outreach, and education.
