In addition to attending four universities (University of New Brunswick, University of Western Ontario, University of Toronto and University of California Santa Barbara), she has attended the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. She speaks about nutrition as a holistic approach to overcoming trauma. Charlene experienced severe trauma after viewing child pornography on a computer she was re-imaging. She knows from experience that her holistic approach can be effective.
Many people ask why Charlene became involved in such a quest. Her family was affected by the crime of children pornography twice – two different members, two different times, two different cities, and as Charlene says, too many times. Her family member was four when neighbours used her for inappropriate activities, pictures, and videos. Her family member lived her life to the beat of her own drum, only to be killed by a drunk driver at the age of 22. Charlene began her charity in memory of her family member and in support of all victims globally.
Charlene is a licensed secondary school educator, specializing in Computer Science. In addition, she has been the Computer Network Administrator in different secondary schools.
