Robin left her job as a computer software systems analyst after 20 years following the suicide of her husband Steve in 2005. At that time she didn’t think she could survive without the love of her life. Through her dark despair she discovered a power within her as she processed her grief. Her journey led to her transformation and she became a certified Grief, Life, Spiritual Coach, and an NLP and Reiki Practitioner to help others. She understands the pain associated with suicide loss and her passion is to inspire, coach and teach through her writings and coaching. She has published two books, “Be Gentle with Me, I’m Grieving” and “Moving to Excellence, A Pathway to Transformation after Grief.” She created a teaching segment to accompany the latter book and a mobile app for Android users called "Think Excellent Thoughts." They are available for purchase at
Another passion Robin discovered after Steve’s suicide was dancing tango, which resulted in her finding her new husband. They married on 11-11-11 and are blissfully happy. They live the winter months on the east coast of Florida and the summer months in Michiana Shores, Indiana.
Robin is a living testimony that you can live an excellent life after tragedy and she wants that for you too!
