My Path to Rediscovering Purpose and Joy

In 2007 my two youngest children died in a car accident – my daughter Carrie was 10 and my son David was 8. The first three years were absolute hell. I felt so fragile and I knew that nothing in my life would ever be the same.

I worked with a therapist to overcome my PTSD – caused by driving the car that rolled over and changed our lives forever. I fought every day to get up in the morning and try to make sense of my new reality. One of the first things I learned was not to judge or let anything anyone said affect me which helped me move forward in relationships...


That’s why I founded my company Build a Life After Loss to coach those who have experienced the tremendous pain of loss to build a life of joy and purpose.
