Meet Our Staff
VOICE Center Director
Anna is passionate about her work with survivors of interpersonal violence and wants to ensure that every person impacted by violence has access to the resources and support they need to heal. The VOICE Center has shown what a strong and resilient community looks like and Anna feels so honored to continue that work. When not in the office Anna loves to hike, huckleberry hunt, and float the beautiful rivers of Montana!
Prevention Education Specialist
Madi worked in community behavioral health for over five years before joining the VOICE Center team in 2021. Madi is passionate about prevention work and cultivating relationships with students, faculty, and staff to create a more hopeful tomorrow. When she’s not exploring campus, Madi loves to explore the great outdoors, try new things (like ice fishing!), run, read, eat, and connect with people.
Along with our staff members, we have a cohort of around 40 students who are trained Peer Advocates. While they come from many different majors like Neurobiology, Psychology, and even Mechanical Engineering, our Peer Advocates all have a similar passion for supporting survivors of interpersonal violence. This group undergoes 40+ hours of training to learn about the roots of interpersonal violence, services for survivors on our campus, and how to provide support and healing strategies to survivors. In our office they answer the 24/7 crisis support line, meet with survivors in a personal setting, and help plan many of our events. Out of our office they can be found reading good books, studying, cooking, or enjoying the outdoors.
