In today’s ridiculously deep, emotional episode, you will learn why it’s important to teach your children those words like a mantra.

Listen in as I learn about ACE or Adverse Childhood Experiences with RN, Speaker, and fellow compassionate, Leslie Peters.

Leslie Peters dives into her own personal childhood experiences and trauma in order to explain the origins of her own ACE and explains why it is important for everyone to know their own ACE score in order to build empathy, understanding, and self-compassion.


Kick Ass RN. ACE survivor. Compassion and empathy builder.

Leslie struggled with a toxic family, father, and husband that often caused her to doubt herself. She overcame a childhood fraught with familial hardship in order to become the badass RN, speaker, and empathy builder she is today.

She has a lot to say and considers the world to be her oyster– and her family.

  • Why is it important to understand how ACE impacts your own life, childrens’ lives, and the people around you?
  • What does stress have to do with it all? What about resilience?
  • How can an understanding of your childhood and life context allow you to develop empathy and compassion, both for yourself and other people around you?
  • What’s your ACE?


Almost 30 years ago, LESLIE PETER’S own experiences called her to the profession of Nursing. Her passion was her pain. She worked in-the-trenches helping low income pregnant women and their families understand and heal their stories with hopes of preventing the cycle of the story. Leslie says that “Every characteristic of mine that allows me to live life with
honesty, empathy, acceptance, relatability and trust (H.E.A.R.T.) came from the adversity I endured. Through a person’s eyes I can see their soul. Without my story I wouldn’t be who I am today. What was once a curse“

Leslie turned her experiences into a positive tool for the transformation of others. She inspires and encourages women and men alike with her conversational, down-home style. Her talks are perfect for women’s events, seminars, training events, marriage conferences, church leadership conferences and workshops.
