On Friday, August 14, 2015, I had the pleasure of speaking to Kathy Haley, a courageous and inspiring woman. Kathy spoke to me for an hour about her experience as a domestic violence victim at the hands of her husband, Dave, between 1989 and 1992. Today, she is a survivor and has channeled her negative experience into a positive one as she reaches out to, and educates, others about domestic violence. Arguably, only someone who has been in Kathy’s position can truly convey the feelings and conflicts a domestic violence victim experiences. Check out Kathy’s website at kathyhaley.org. She is now a member of KOC so don’t be surprised if she pops up in the comments section to join in the discussion.

The interview is in two parts. Part 1 is about 15 minutes and Part 2 is about 45 minutes. It wasn’t my intention to record this in two parts but I had a technical glitch after 15 minutes so, rather than have Kathy repeat, I just started Part 2. Forgive me for the abrupt ending of Part 1 but, trust me, you didn’t miss any information.
