Her team analyses national trends and best practices, creating comprehensive training and resources to help facilitate the effective and systemic eradication of trafficking in the US.

Before joining Polaris, Rochelle spent six years as a prosecutor of gender-based violent crimes in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she is bar-certified to practice law, and ran the non-profit Feminist Public Works. As an Assistant District Attorney, Rochelle championed the need for increased investigation and prosecution of human trafficking in Philadelphia, successfully prosecuting the first two trials herself.
