35 J.E. Rome - Surviving Trauma, Mental Health, and Poetic Word Slaughter
Can toxic family secrets ever be forgiven or forgotten? J.E. Rome’s raw, visceral poetry is a personal and chronological journey through the hell of growing up in a dysfunctional family where when bad things happen, there’s no one to blame but yourself. Rome faces the skeletons in the closet head-on: from childhood trauma, abuse, and parental neglect to the soul-ravaging effects of poverty and addiction.  Graphic and hard-hitting, this unforgettable memoir, structured as a collection of poems, takes you through the darkest places of the human heart to the light of hope and truth. J.E. ROME shares the power of acknowledging and destroying the demons of trauma through writing, sharing, forgiving, and self-care. Learn more at www.tappedpoetry.com.

In this episode, Bernadette Smith shares how a proactive approach to inclusion and equality at the front line can bring measurable financial benefits. It’s not always easy, but it’s worth it.

Bernadette has since expanded her training offerings and now consults with finance, airlines, insurance, health care, and many other industries. Bernadette and her colleagues have consulted with and trained thousands of people from more than 24 countries on LGBTQ issues. Clients have included Alaska Airlines, Grant Thornton, Hard Rock, MGM Resorts, Melia Hotels, Marriott Hotels, and Ritz-Carlton brands. She has spoken at conferences such as the World Education Congress, Catersource, the LGBTQ Marketing & Advertising Symposium, and many other events.
