Our Story

Having experienced three significant losses within the past decade, each of which occurred throughout my time in the corporate space, I not only appreciate loss, but also its impact within the workplace. (Mekel)

I had to cope with a significant loss as I was just entering the workforce. I am committed to raising grief awareness and bringing accessible, evidence-based and engaging grief education to all around the world. (Janet)

Together, we want to help managers level-up their emotional intelligence.
