My big takeaway:

You truly can rise from the ashes of grief

Criminologist Dr. Ashley Wellman specializes in helping families through homicide and sexual assault. She became a widow in 2018 when her husband unexpectedly passed away, and she lets us in on how that experience changed the trajectory of her life.

This episode is such a powerful one – I learned SO much from Ashley. If you’re dealing with grief in any way, or know someone dealing with grief, this episode is a MUST listen.

TRIGGER WARNING: grief, loss, trauma, death
