We’re excited to announce the winner of the 2019 Power of Resilience Scholarship is Michaela Goodloe. Congratulations Michaela! Learn more about Michaela below:

Michaela grew up in West Jordan, Utah. She is the oldest of four children.  She loved music growing up and started playing guitar at twelve and taking voice lessons at fourteen. She loved writing music and performing. After graduating high school in 2015, Michaela earned her Associates degree in Vocal Music Performance at Snow College. She then transferred to Utah State University where she is currently enrolled in the Music Therapy undergraduate program.

Michaela is passionate about furthering research in the music therapy field, particularly in areas involving adolescents using clinical songwriting and improvisation. Over the past few years, she has worked to gain professional experience with different populations. She worked as a mental health technician in a residential treatment facility for teens dealing with the effects of significant trauma.  This facility is where her interest in helping survivors of sexual assault began as she first witnessed the terrifying and life-altering effects that came with PTSD. Currently she works as a mentor for a program at her university that gives individuals with intellectual disabilities an opportunity to attend college and receive real college credit.

Michaela said, “I am so grateful for this scholarship and cannot express how much of a difference this will make in my life as I continue my education. Although awareness of sexual assault has been on the rise in recent years, there is still a long way to go for victims to receive the support they need as they cope with the aftermath of the traumatic event. I am fortunate enough to attend a university with an incredible support system, but I know that many survivors do not have that opportunity. I appreciate the work that the Law Offices of Scott Glovsky does to advocate for victims and hope to see others follow.”
