Beth holds a BS in Social Policy from Northwestern University (Chicago) and an MA in International Community Development from Northwest University (Seattle).

In 2010, after building a photography business with a heart to use it for social change, she launched A Face to Reframe.
Her passion to end human trafficking through photography began on a couch one evening while she sobbed through the documentary, Born Into Brothels. It became one of those moments which delineates time into before and after. She now serves as the Manager of Domestic Anti-Trafficking with the U COUNT Campaign and the co-founder and facilitator of the Larimer County Anti-Trafficking Community Response Team. She holds a certificate in Transformative Arts and Restorative Practices and is the co-author of END: Engaging Men to End Sex Trafficking.

Karrin Anderson earned her MA in Communication at Colorado State University and her PhD in Communication at Indiana University. She is a Professor of Communication Studies at CSU who specializes in gender and political communication. Her passion to combat human trafficking grew out of her exposure to research on 19th-century abolitionists like William Wilberforce, William Lloyd Garrison, Frederick Douglass, and Angelina Grimke. She developed and currently teaches an undergraduate course at CSU, entitled “Communication and Anti Human Trafficking,” that focuses on the communication strategies employed by historical and contemporary anti-trafficking advocates and examines the ways in which language choices influence public policy. The course is taught as a community-based learning class, connecting students with local anti-trafficking experts and non-profit organizations to raise awareness about the problem of sex and labor trafficking regionally, nationally, and internationally.
She also volunteers as a trainer for the U COUNT Campaign to Stop Human Trafficking. Karrin lives with her husband and two sons in Fort Collins and is passionate about helping to build a network of concerned citizens, professionals, and policymakers who are educated about the problem of human trafficking and equipped to respond to the problem ethically and effectively.

Scott started serving his community in 1992 when he joined the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. After coordinating DARE programs for local schools and working with at-risk youth, he rose in rank within the Sheriff’s department and started supervising and training academy recruits and local college security staff. One of his assignments involved training security personnel at Azusa Pacific University (APU), a private Christian University dedicated to serving God First, the university’s motto.
After retiring from the department in 2007, Scott and his wife, Monica, (whom he met at APU), moved to Fort Collins, Colorado when Monica accepted a teaching position within Poudre School District. Coming full circle, Scott once again found himself working with at-risk youth at the Larimer County District Attorney’s Office. Now as Chief Investigator with the DA’s office, Scott oversees the juvenile diversion program and is active in the community raising awareness about the realities of human trafficking in Northern Colorado.
