I’ve been leading grief support groups for Hospice of Santa Cruz County for more than a decade. After experiencing how their hospice team provided so much assistance to my family before and after Paul (who was my husband) died from cancer, I became very involved as a volunteer with the organization.

I’m the author of Beyond Loss in a Pandemic: Find Hope and Move Through Grief After Someone Close to You Dies; After Loss: Hope for Widows, Widowers and Partners; and co-author of Tech Grief: Survive and Thrive through Career Losses, which won a Writer’s Digest Award. I taught writing courses at three universities and have been a featured speaker for book clubs, podcasts, events, webinars, and technology conferences.
