Boomer Rose is a grateful recovering addict who transfers his lived experience to helping individuals find positive growth from their traumatic experiences. Boomer is the UX/UI Expert for Humanistic Technologies Inc, an affiliate of The Harrell Center for the Study of Family Violence (University of South Florida), a member of the NASW-CA Tech Council, and a student at Shenandoah University and Long Beach City College. Having experienced incarceration, institutions, and a near-fatal overdose, he understands the challenges individuals face upon re-entry and early recovery. Boomer uses his personal experiences with addiction, trauma, and the criminal justice system to better understand the needs of those searching for services at a deeper level. Over the past year, Boomer has worked with communities and non-profit organizations to create mobile applications that empower vulnerable communities. This past year Boomer had the opportunity to present at the 9th Annual Drug Prevention Summit for Drug-Free America Foundation (ACEs and Addiction), Shenandoah University (Awareness of Homelessness), and USF Health Research Day (Clean App). Having been the executive director of Thrive Alive during 2021, he is ecstatic to return to San Clemente to facilitate the first AIM High Series with The Noble Path Foundation. In the future, Boomer plans to continue his academic career by pursuing a dual Master's Degree in Social Work and Public Health at The University of South Florida.
