My journey to the Grief Recovery Institute ® began after the devastating loss of my 3 year old son, Eddie Ryan, in 2010. After struggling for years with the conflicting feelings and emotions surrounding my son’s death, I found the tools needed to begin my recovery using the Grief Recovery Method ® and this helped me to heal my own broken heart. Recognizing the value of this work, I became a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist ® dedicating my life to helping others overcome loss and grief in their lives.  In 2016, I was asked to become a Trainer for the Institute and I'm honored to teach the GRM Specialist Certification courses throughout the US and Canada, and in 2017 I joined the Institute full time as the Operations Manager; I am now the Director of Advanced GRM Training Programs.  In August of 2018 I moved to Sisters, OR from Battle Ground, WA to work out of the Headquarters for the Grief Recovery Institute, located in Bend, OR. 

My background includes a BA in Social Science, with a minor in Human Development and a Certificate in Human Services Case Management and Administration. For over 20 years I've been an instructor, trainer and facilitator teaching a wide range of topics. I also has experience working with at-risk foster children as a behavioral specialist as well as coaching and mentoring youth in our schools. I'm a passionate advocate for children’s safety within my state and at the national level. My career includes over 23 years of military and law enforcement experience.

I retired from the US Air Force (Reserves) as a First Sergeant in 2009 where I was responsible for the health, safety and welfare of service members and their families. During my career I deployed several times; my last deployment was as a First Sergeant to Iraq in 2006. As a law enforcement officer, I have worked in agencies at the city, county, State and Federal levels. I have a profound passion for helping our military service members, law enforcement, and their families.

I offer a variety of GRM programs, including in-person 1-on-1's, Online 1-on-1, 2 Day Personal Workshops, Certification Training, and the Helping Children With Loss Program.

Please contat me for more information on the Grief Recovery Method or any of the programs offered, or working with me 1-on-1.  If you're interested in attending a weekend Personal Workshop, you can view upcoming dates, locations, or register via our website: https://www.griefrecoverymethod.com/grief-recovery-workshops  .   If you'd like more information on my journey of healing, you can read more:
