KRISTEEN CHURCHMAN:

 

Kristeen Churchman is a longtime high school best friend.  We’ve shared hopes and heartbreaks and the experience of both taking care of our mothers before their passing.  Kristeen and I connect on the lessons, guidance and grace of when family comes first and have an honest conversation of the trauma and love loss brings.
