My name is Alison Pena. I began calling myself Bad Widow after my husband died of pancreatic cancer in 2016.
After feeling completely broken by my own loss and getting lots of well-meaning advice, I decided to be a different kind of widow, ignore all the ‘shoulds,’ correct bad assumptions, honor my boundaries and live life on my own terms.
Now I support my 1-on-1 and group clients who are grieving to do the same with:
a 5-step roadmap to move forward through their grief and back to thriving on their own terms
the Heartbreak to Hope Haven group coaching program
my #1 Amazon bestselling book, The Bad Widow Guide to Life After Loss: Moving Through Grief to Live and Love Again
