Episode 80 | Life After Loss with Lesley Turner

Lesley Turner is the Founder of Eve’s Eyes Productions, the “Vision of Women”, an all women LGBTQIA+ collaboration of award-winning writers, editors and producers. Together, we offer story-driven and emotionally impactful fundraising videos for the nonprofit and political sectors.

I met Lesley at a Wishcircle after the loss of her husband, uncertain of how she could build a new life for herself and two daughters. With courage, hope, and commitment, she did just that and we were privileged to witness her journey as she attended every monthly Wishcircle for over a year.

She's a champion for mental health and grief support which is now become her life's work. She shares some incredible resources in our conversation, but you can also find them in the links below. If you or someone you love, needs help, please connect them with these amazing organizations.
