Welcome to Reclaim611. My name is Carrie Schirato and I am a wife, a mother of four, and a Nurse Practitioner. For the past 13 years I have worked as a Family Nurse Practitioner in the emergency room and trauma center. My favorite thing about emergency medicine is variety; in any given shift there may be an opportunity to save a life, perform an emergent procedure, empathize with the hurting, encourage those who are broken in spirit, advocate for the needy, make someone laugh through their fears, mourn with the grieving, and look into the eyes of another human being to see if there is something they are telling me that they may not be able to express.
In 2017, I co-founded an anti-human trafficking non-profit organization called Reclaim611, with two of my long-time friends and colleagues. We each carry our own experiences with the recollection of possible missed victims, however through proper education, training and protocol implementation, share victories of now “seeing” victims.
Hi, I'm Carrie Taylor and I am a wife, mother of 2 sweet girls, Registered Nurse, abolitionist and a co-founder of Reclaim611. I have over 13 years of healthcare experience as a Registered Nurse. Although I love caring for my patients and serving them as a bedside nurse, I became acutely aware of an undiagnosed need within the healthcare system.
Staggering statistics regarding human trafficking victims and healthcare providers led me to step into the fight to end human trafficking.
I now spend my days working to further this cause and can often be found at conferences and events, or just about any forum for public speaking that will allow me to drive awareness around this global epidemic. Need a speaker, I’m your gal!
I’m Candace Rich and a North Texas native who has worked in the DFW hospital systems for the last 13 years; the last 6 years in pediatric medicine as a Nurse Practitioner.
After learning about the high incidences of human trafficking victims that have contact with healthcare professionals and the lack of knowledge and preparedness to respond, Reclaim611 was born. I believe it is healthcare professionals and hospital systems due diligence to be educated and have the proper protocol in place to respond to our most vulnerable and unseen victims.
Reclaim611 exists to fill this gap and unite front-line providers.
My name is Lainey Nakhleh and I am a wife to an amazing servant leader, mother of two rambunctious boys, marketer by day, human trafficking victim advocate by night.
My super power is multi-tasking and God continues to stir my heart to use the gifts He’s given me to join Reclaim611 and step into the fight to end human trafficking.
I call DFW home and am proud to be a graduate in communications from Baylor University…before Waco was known for Chip and Joanna Gaines! I have 13 years of marketing experience but don’t like to call it work, it’s more of a creative outlet.
