Drug Facilitated Sexual Assault
Sharing the Magic of Music
My healing and recovery from rape by Bill Cosby is what led me into this work with music as a health and wellness tool. (See “My Story” page) Read below to learn more about the work I do to remove the stigma of talking about DFSA. Allow me to answer your questions and shed some light into the dark shadows of what is known by those in criminal justice as “The Perfect Crime.”
My speaking programs
Through these presentations, I share what I learned throughout my own experiences. I provide interactive presentations with music for corporations and caregivers, schools and service organizations, any group who would like to know more about the magic of music as a tool for health and wellness.

I am proud to be part of a new documentary film: Erased, regarding Drug Facilitated Sexual Assault. In the words of the Director/Producer:
“DFSA is a complex and oft-misunderstood topic that’s rarely explored beyond a headline, making it the perfect subject for a documentary. But this isn’t your typical sexual assault doc – our goal isn’t just to spread awareness (although that’s a big part of it), we’re primarily targeting a male audience with goal of building empathy. After speaking with many experts on the subject, empathy emerged as the most effective method for prevention.
At its core, drug-facilitated sexual assault has three main elements: the victims/survivors, the perpetrators, and the drugs (including alcohol). Erased offers a compelling perspective on each of those three elements.”
