Bridie Farrell, Senior Advisor at Milestone
About Bridie Farrell
Bridie was sexually abused at age 15 by her then-33-year-old speed skating teammate. Since coming forward in 2013, Farrell has committed her life to supporting survivors as they disclose their trauma, seek legal counsel, and navigate post-litigation decisions. Farrell was a driving force in passing the New York Child Victims Act and Arizona H.B. 2466, extending the statute of limitations for survivors to file civil suits in both states. She also founded America Loves Kids, a nonprofit that educates the public on child sexual abuse, collaborates with policy makers on survivor-focused legislation, and connects survivors to legal resources.
“Each time I’ve seen a flaw in the existing system for survivors, instead of accepting it, I’ve set out to fix it. My goal is to ensure that survivors today are infinitely more equipped than I ever was, from disclosure through to the next phase of our lives.”
Bridie has expanded her advocacy to helping survivors in the post-settlement phase of their journey with Milestone. We help survivors understand and manage their settlement monies to achieve lasting financial security.
Bridie's Message to Survivors
“Welcome to a community that understands you. I’m also a survivor of child sexual abuse. The abuse I endured as a teen had a profound impact on my life, but it does not define me as a person. Nor does it define you. Years after the abuse, I channeled my frustration and pain into tirelessly working to extend statutes of limitations for my brother and sister survivors in several states so they could come forward and hold their abusers accountable.
If you’re reading this, you are one of the courageous individuals who did just that. Now that you have some resolution with your case, what is next? What are your goals? What are your dreams? This is yet another inflection point, and I’m here to tell you that you are not alone. I invite you to come talk with us at Milestone. We will sit with you, listen to you, and respect you as you make financial choices about what is best for you. Whatever is next, it will require planning and the right partner. That’s what we are here for – to help you plan your next steps.”
