Welcome to my site! It feels amazing to say this place exists.
A short five and a half years ago, my daughter, Tabitha, died in a tragic accident. Both the accident itself and Tabitha's death had a life changing impact on my husband, our surviving daughter, Isabelle, and myself. It also affected and continues to touch the lives of our extended family, friends, colleagues, our faith community and many others throughout the Twin Cities.
In January of 2018, five years following Tabitha's death, with the support of my parents, I was able to release my first book, "Stella's Story: Dealing With Sibling Loss".
My hope is that this site and 'Stella's Story' serve as useful tools for those who share the painful experience of losing a child. I look forward to sharing with you things that I have learned and experienced on my own grief journey.
