Ignorance is not bliss and can be more harmful than helpful.  My passion is to educate as many people as possible how they can be as supportive as possible to someone who is grieving.  Through public speaking and structured lectures the following information is covered:
****Myths and Misconceptions ****Societal Stigmas****Antisocial Behaviors
Advocating for the one with the grieving heart is very important.  I strive to connect with Churches, Employers, Entrepreneurs, Organizations, and more and educate them on the following:
****Bereavement Leave****Grief In The Workplace****Absentee-ism vs. Presentee-ism
