Adverse Childhood Experiences Can Be Connectors to Joy | Martha Londagin | TEDxDicksonStreet

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) affect millions of people in regard to their adult relationships, physical well being, and mental health. Martha’s change in attitude toward her childhood experiences led her to see the joy in her life today, due to the connectors those ACE’s created. These relationships today bless and enrich her life, and she no longer wishes that Mike and Carol Brady had been her parents. Martha Londagin is a small business banker with Legacy National Bank.
