Founder, Speaker, Stand Up Resources
Anna Nasset is the owner of Stand Up Resources, which provides training on stalking and sexual assault, as well as graphic and web design for victim service agencies. She is also the author of Now Speak: From Stalked to Standing Up.
Nasset has been an ongoing victim of stalking by a man she does not know for the last decade and turns her experience of sexual and psychological abuse into that of speaking, outreach, and activism. In 2019, the offender received the maximum sentence for aggravated felony stalking ‒ 10 years. With her newfound freedom, Nasset now works to change the story, to stand up and speak up, and to educate others on the crime of stalking. She is passionate about assisting first responders, victim service providers, and community members in protecting and serving stalking victims.
Nasset is an international speaker specializing in the subject of stalking. She works with law enforcement, victim service agencies, state and local agencies, the Department of Defense, universities, businesses, and organizations to be part of the solution. She is an authority on addressing stalking, and navigating the criminal justice system, as well as empathy, believability, and the importance of multidisciplinary teams and victim-centered practices. Nasset addresses these complex subjects with her energetic nature and positive voice for change, awareness, and justice.
Nasset graduated from Anderson University in Indiana in 2002 with a degree in Fine Arts. She went on to own Artisans on Taylor Gallery in Port Townsend, Washington, which she sadly had to close due to the crime of stalking. After relocating to Vermont, she founded Stand Up Resources in 2018 and joined the Board of Directors for End Violence Against Women International (EVAWI) in 2021.
Nasset is also a collaborative partner with Difference Makers 10 Strong and Appriss VINElink. She hosts a podcast, The Mend (sponsored by the Center for Crime Victim Services), which focuses on topics and services to support crime victims. She resides in the Green Mountains of Vermont with her three-legged chihuahua Dolly Parton. Learn more about Nasset at www.standupresources.com.
