Heidi Holland Seamon: Heidi hails from Almost Heaven, West Virginia, where she learned the value of hard work and helping others. She grew up in a big Italian family with a love of music and sun-filled summers on the lake. A creative at heart, Heidi has always found joy in making something out of nothing.

After her brother's sudden death at age twenty-four, Heidi experienced true grief for the first time. Atlee was her only sibling and, all of a sudden, the one person who shared her childhood memories was gone.

Heidi was introduced to doTERRA essential oils in 2013, which quickly expanded from gradual daily changes to a lifestyle focused on natural wellness. After an unexpected emotional experience during a talk about loss at a doTERRA Leadership conference, Heidi found herself drawn to helping those experiencing grief and began working to lessen their pain. She created a class on essential oils for grief, which led her to Sue Ann, who inspired this book.

A lawyer by trade, Heidi startted on her path to help others, and how serves as the General Counsel for a tech company. She considers herself blessed to work with two companies that treasure their people and want to leave a positive mark on the world.

Heidi shares her home among the hills with her very musical and lively family, including her husband of twentry-plus years, Davin, and her three children, Laryn, Antonin, and Agustin.

Sue Ann Grann: Teasing that she was born with built-in fins and a pen in her hand, former competitive swimmer and TV Writer/Producer Sue Ann Grann has always used water and writing for therapy.

Both were terrific outlets for her after the loss of her father and four other influential people in her life. Having learned so much about herself during her grief journey, Sue Ann has always felt drawn to support friends during this often isolating process.

After many unsucessful years trying to start a family, Sue Ann and her husband Eric hit the jackpot with their triplet boys Ian, Gavin, and Aaron, and their daughter Ana-Clare, all in two years. One son endured a serious seven-year medical battle, which ultimately led Sue Ann to discover the power of doTERRA essential oils. Committed to sparing other parents a similar fate, she became a doTERRA Wellness Advocate and considers her a job a joyful ministry.

Following the sudden loss of her two senior citizen dogs in the same year, Sue Ann heard Heidi teach a class on essential oils for grief. She was excited to use this information to help so many friends and customers—and with her writing background, know there was an opportunity to incorporate stories and journaling to offer hope and healing.

Having spent most of her married life in the San Francisco Bay Area, Sue Ann and her husband, four teens, and two South Korean rescue pups now live outside Atlanta, Georgia.

Sue Ann is also very active in human trafficking awareness and prevention.
