Featured speaker: Melissa Dohme Hill
Violence Prevention Advocate and Outreach Coordinator at Hands Across The Bay
It’s a true miracle that Melissa Dohme Hill is alive and healthy today. In January of 2012, her high school ex-boyfriend brutally attacked her by stabbing her 32 times in the neck, face, arms, and hands attempting to take her life. The attack caused her entire blood volume to be replaced twice, resulting her to flat-line four times and suffer a stroke in the emergency room. Following that horrific night and her miraculous recovery, Melissa developed the conviction to become an advocate and speak out against domestic violence. She has shared her story with thousands of people, speaking at various domestic violence events, conferences, high schools, and colleges. Melissa has been featured in national and international publications and television shows, including: People Magazine, 48 Hours “Live to Tell” , Inside Edition, Good Morning America, Today Show, BBC News, Fox News, CNN, Nancy Grace on HLN, Investigative Discovery, and many more.
