LaTisha M. Bowie was tragically inducted into the widow club on the morning of March 18, 2011, at the tender age of 31. It was on this day that her husband and companion of 17 years chose to end his life and completed suicide. As she navigated through the complicated grief process with two young children, LaTisha found that support and resources in this area of loss were minimal or lacking. This sparked LaTisha to become an advocate for families and individuals processing through the trauma of suicide; which culminated into the creation of Dialogos: Survivors Support and Postvention. Dialogos is a non-profit organization that offers scholarships and healing support through face to face and online support groups to individuals and families struggling with the after effects of loss due to suicide. Dialogos also advocates for survivor awareness, and the elimination of the shame, blame, and guilt, that survivors often face after the loss of a loved one.
Professionally, LaTisha is an educator, teaching students with Emotional Impairments and Mental Health disorders by day; and teaching future teachers as an Adjunct Professor of Special Education at the University of Michigan by night. She is currently completing her Doctorate in Special Education/Curriculum and Instruction.
Standing firmly on Isaiah 61, LaTisha is also very active in marketplace ministry. She is a licensed Minister and is actively involved in local, national, and international missions. She has completed her Bachelors in Biblical Studies with future plans to become a chaplain.
LaTisha considers herself a Proverbs 3:5-8 woman. Above all, she is the mom to two awesome young people and together they are successfully navigating their journey to wholeness with the guidance of the Lord.
