Hello! My name is Samantha Thornsberry, and I am the Director of the Cahuilla Consortium Victim Advocacy Program. I have been working for the CCVAP since its inception in 2010, serving as the first Victim Advocate. Prior to my role within the Consortium, I worked in education as an English Professor. When not working, I enjoy reading, watching Harry Potter movies on repeat, and spending time with my family. I am also an enrolled member of the Cahuilla Band of Indians, and it is a pleasure to serve my tribe in this role!
