Terry Wise

After being widowed at 35 following her spouse's death from Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS) and 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 full-time writing and public speaking. She travels to over 50 cities a year 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 care-giving, suicide prevention, and the process of recovering emotional health.
