Executive Director, Survivor’s Ink
Mary Fischer is the Executive Director of Survivor’s Ink. Mary brings many years of professional experience to the leadership of the Survivor's Ink organization, with over nine years of experience as a legal assistant and an associates degree in business administration. Her passion and connection to the mission lies in her own life experiences. While not a victim of human trafficking, Mary was sexually abused at a young age, raped as a teenager, and suffered a series of manipulative and physically and mentally abusive relationships. During the dark periods of her life, Mary got tattoos, which would later serve as reminders of the pain and despair she was in when she got them.
Hearing of the work of Survivor’s Ink and its visionary founder Jennifer Kempton immediately triggered a deep empathy for the trauma faced by survivors who suffer the daily reminder of their abuse in the form of physical scars, markings, and brandings. These marks are constant reminders of a violent past. Through her work at Survivor’s Ink Mary has now dedicated herself to alleviating that suffering.
