More to come about this guest who will share her survival story and talk about trauma & repressed memories. Emma Wise is the pen name of a woman who was sexually abused as a child. In the years since she tried to kill herself at age 19, she has earned a bachelor's degree and two master's degrees. With the help of therapists, friends and her faith in God, though not organized religion, she has built a life and is married with three step-children and six grandchildren. Now she is 42 years old and she lives in her home town and is currently a social worker for abused and neglected children and a mental health therapist. She is currently working on a memoir of her life story and loves to spend time reading, writing, drawing, target shooting, being outdoors, playing with her grandchildren and traveling.
