"I felt called to become an RD after a counseling internship that inspired me to become more involved in the lives of college students outside of the realm of professional therapy. My hope for the students who make AE their home is that they learn more about themselves, others, and who Jesus really is, and how to draw on these experiences to help make sense of their life journey."
Atkins-Ellis has partnered with Second Life of Chattanooga. Second Life is a resource hub for sex trafficking victims, giving them tools to start a new life.
