Katrina Massey is a mother, wife, Realtor, and a victim’s advocate and national speaker on domestic minor sex trafficking (DMST). She began her career in restaurant management, breaking racial barriers of becoming the first African American female General Manager of one of the top restaurants in Atlanta. She went on to manage over $6 million in revenue and provided employment to survivors of sex trafficking. Her heart to heart work is very personal. Having been exploited in the commercial sex industry as a teenager in Atlanta and New York, Katrina impacts the lives of youth and young adults affected by sex-trafficking through mentoring, court advocacy, policy work, public speaking, and training. Appearing regularly as a speaker and panelist, Katrina participates in conferences, workshops, and other awareness events. She has appeared in the Washington Times, CNN, MTV-U, ECPAT, and other outlets. Her career and community service led her to New York City and the role of Executive Director of the nation’s largest service provider to sex trafficking victims. After her tenure as Executive Director, Katrina took the leap into the world of real estate full time in 2017. As a Realtor in New York City, Katrina enjoys exploring the city, attending Broadway shows, the freedom of time to spend with her family, and is a part of a local Mutual Aid providing groceries to neighbors weekly.
