 My slice-of-life memoir Own Your Other is the story of my husband’s sudden death in a helicopter crash, leaving me and my two and four-year-old daughters behind. The book begins with a love story and is about our journey and how I learned to "own my other." It is sprinkled with the moments of love, humor, joy and the irony that life often presents along your path. 

I am currently in the publishing process and working on my second book about the importance of resilience in both business and life. I also write and contribute to motivational and business articles for numerous media outlets.
