Just the beginning of my healing journey...

My Whole New Life book series contains true stories of my personal, lived experiences, what I’ve learned from them, and how I’ve grown from them. I am not a professional author, but rather someone who chose to share my story, in my voice, to assure people they are not alone. I am open to being vulnerable if my stories can help even one person. Better yet, perhaps my stories can provide a bit of inspiration or a glimpse of hope, if needed.

Approximately two months after my husband passed away from cancer, I needed to get away for a while. In 2020 I was not only his wife, but also his caregiver for the last year of his life. Watching my husband slowly die in front of my eyes took everything out of me. My 46 Days getaway was an opportunity for me to escape reality for a while, slowly find myself again, and discover a variety of ways to begin the long and grueling healing process.
About the author
I did Ironman at age 36, survived cancer at age 45, and became a widow at age 52. Now I am an author and podcaster, writing and talking about my life, love, and loss. I share my experiences and what I do to find purpose; if it helps even one person in this universe, then my heart will be full. I had the most amazing husband a girl could ask for; we had a fun and adventurous life for 30 years, filled with a ton of memories that make me smile. I have an incredible family, including twelve nieces and nephews who all have a special place in my heart (they told me I am vibrant, fearless, cool, outgoing, resilient, and thoughtful). I am also blessed with an abundance of the coolest friends on this planet. I enjoy being active – from cycling to yoga. I also enjoy just bumming around in my Jeep Wrangler with the top and doors off on a sunny day. But most of all, I truly live for spending time with my friends and family creating memories that will last a lifetime.
