Terry L. Wise

Widowed at 35 following her spouse's death from Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS), and after surviving a near-fatal suicide attempt, Terry Wise spent the next several years in treatment. A former trial attorney, Wise has since devoted her life to international public speaking and full-time writing. She has traveled to hundreds of cities to appear as a keynote speaker, continuing education instructor, and workshop presenter, speaking to both the general public and professionals on topics related to depression, grief, long-term caregiving, suicide prevention, and the process of recovery.
