Elizabeth grew up in a wealthy neighborhood with a seemingly normal and loving family. But unbeknownst to her friends, teachers, and even her husband, Elizabeth’s parents had been sex trafficking her since she was 4 years old. Fearing for her life and the life of her husband, who her parents threatened to harm if she told anyone what was going on, Elizabeth continued to be trafficked by her parents until she was 23 years old. At that time, she cut off all contact with her family and focused on her family, husband, and healing herself.
Now, Elizabeth is the founder of Hero Bands, a company that creates handmade leather wristbands with motivational words on them to encourage the wearer.
