About Me

My son, Billy, and I on our last vacation together in 2017.

I'm the Founder of Thriving After Loss, Grief and Life Transition Coaching.

I've been drawn to share my experiences with others through Grief and Life Transition Coaching. My hope is that when you find yourself in a season of change, you will recognize that you are not alone.


My first loss came at the age of 12 when my mother died suddenly from heart failure. I have since experienced the loss of my 88 year old father to cancer and the loss of my 22 year old son to suicide. I have experienced lost love, divorce, changed friendships, financial hardships, and many other life challenges. All of which have driven me to this current path and purpose. 

My philosophy is that the only way out is through. There is no short cut to healing; no quick fix that will make everything ok. But... you get to choose how your story plays out. You are the one in control of your joy! As hard and far away as that may seem now, I promise that there is hope for the future.

One on One Coaching

In a one on one coaching session, we will focus on your story and whatever you need in that space. Coaching is about listening with empathy and compassion, and creating a safe place to speak and be heard without judgement. 

The goal of each session is driven by your needs and desires for yourself and your future, and to come up with actions and resources to help you achieve your best life. 

Speaking Engagements

Group events are a wonderful way to share helpful information, tips, tricks, and tools for handling life's challenges. If you are looking for a speaker to share inspiration in a time of uncertainty, I would be honored to share my experiences and insights to help shine light and give hope to those who may be struggling with grief, change, and loss of purpose.


Whether it is a small group setting or a large venue, a Grief and Life Transition Coach can bring motivation and value to your event.

Corporate & Business Support

It's possible that in your business environment you may run into areas of need when it comes to grief or loss, transition, and finding purpose. Whether it's for yourself as a leader or for your team due to challenges and circumstance, Grief and Life Transition Coaching can be a valuable tool for your growth and success.

The goal of Coaching within a business setting is to determine the barriers and roadblocks holding you or your team back from achieving success now and in the future. By exploring the circumstances at hand, as well as the direction that you would like your team to go, we can determine a plan of action to ensure improved morale, forward momentum, and overall achievement.
