next – and focus our efforts on our communities and populations most in need of this support.
The only way to address a challenge of this magnitude is to work together, collaboratively,

Trust is of paramount importance. We reference the most trusted, validated information and
ACEs are what happened to us as children. They are not our fault. We can take steps toward
caring for ourselves, our growth, and our healing and recovery. Together, we can change our

Our Leadership Team is comprised of individuals who are deeply knowledgeable and care passionately about the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences.
Community Engagement & Learning
As a former teacher, principal, and, most recently, as a lead trainer and consultant for social-emotional learning and resilience, Bryan’s passion is creating trauma-informed, healing-centered schools.
Growing up in a mixed-race family and attending privileged private schools while living in the apartments his family managed was formative in his understanding of the multiple perspectives of the human condition. As a cisgender husband and father of three, Bryan is committed to leaving a legacy of social justice for future generations.
Through his work with a local First 5 Commission in California, his partnership with PACES Connection, his service on a Community Roundtable for Engagement, Equity, and Diversity for a local law enforcement agency, and his policy education work with the California Campaign to Counter Childhood Adversity, Bryan has pushed for systems reform and eliminating barriers to opportunity.
Bryan’s path to true connection is through telling a good story and lots of laughter.
