Linda Marshall is an entrepreneur, best selling amazon author, certified grief specialist, life coach, trainer, speaker, hypnotherapist, and mental health advocate. She has lived through tragedy and loss in her own life and is now passionate in inspiring others to heal and grow through their own grief. In addition to publicly speak about her own personal grief story, she has volunteered with the Halifax Regional Police, Victim Services, helping victims of sudden death, sexual assault, and domestic violence. She loves inspiring and working directly with her clients, as well as teaching suicide intervention skills (ASIST) to students, first responders, military, health care workers, teachers, and community volunteers.
She lost her first marriage of 13 years due to addictions and became a single parent with two daughters. Years later on February 17, 2011, her spouse Barry lost his battle to mental illness and suicide. This tragedy left her and her family shattered. After this traumatic event in her life, Linda moved back to her hometown of Halifax, Nova Scotia, where she was suddenly an empty nester. She left her successful career in the corporate world in Toronto for a new life and switched gears to help others in grief. This meant advancing her education in a completely different field at the age of 45.
Linda married her current husband Jon, a retired military veteran on December 31, 2014. She has two married daughters Amanda (Ryan) & Alisha (Rob), one stepson Tyler (Brittany), and three grandchildren (Theresa, Parker & Adeline). Although Nove Scotia will always be considered home, she currently resides near her daughters and grandchildren in Brantford, Ontario.
