Good Mourning Journeys evolved from my own experience with love and loss as well as my 35-year career in travel. I have co-owned and operated the premier travel club in the U.S. for savvy travelers, sharing first-hand insight on luxury vacations worldwide through print and e-publications as well as providing travel agency expertise with value-added benefits of discounts and perks. Personally, I have traveled far and wide and have always found experiencing new places and meeting new people to be educational, enriching, rejuvenating, and inspiring.


When my Mom passed away, I couldn’t imagine my life ever being the same again and I didn’t know how to wade through the heaviness of grief. I tried various strategies to help me “get better." I read books, attended support groups, talked trends at a Death Café, sought afterlife messages from a medium, retained a counselor, tried therapy for trauma, and I prayed. I also escaped to far-flung destinations.


Over the course of a few months, I was amazed! I had started on an unexpected path to transcending my own loss that led me to create Good Mourning Journeys! I want everyone to have the opportunity I've had to experience a collection of strategies to deal with grief combined with getting away from it all, all the while being with like-minded people who understand … because they are in the SAME BOAT!
