Press Kit


Regardless of Judy Brizendine’s title throughout her professional career, research and writing played key roles. And so, when considering a career shift in 2006 due to major life changes, writing skyrocketed to the top of her list—along with a desire to make a difference.

One of the important changes was marriage. Judy met Jon Kreider, a widower, years after both of their spouses died–and they were married in 2002. Their experiences of loss were completely different, so they are uniquely equipped to communicate different perspectives about the healing process.

After leading grief-support workshops together, Judy and Jon pledged to carry the message of how critical resolved grief is for future health and happiness.
