Maintaining Positivity Through Life's Challenges - Amanda Kloots

Maintaining Positivity Through Life’s Challenges – With Amanda Kloots

As we all know, people are reeling from this world-wide crisis emotionally, socially, and economically. People have shared a variety of intense feelings they are experiencing during this time, among them:

  • Fear
  • Deep sadness
  • Anxiety
  • Grief
  • Uncertainty over the present and what the future holds
  • Vulnerability
  • Despair
  • Anger
  • Hopelessness

The Hospice of Santa Barbara illumunate Speaker Series features a new nationally-known speaker every other month. This month's presentation is with Amanda Kloots, TV Host and Broadway actress.

During our time together, Amanda will share the story of losing her husband unexpectedly to COVID-19, and reflects on this overwhelming loss, love, hope, parenting, and the need for a community during struggles.

No one exemplifies the great emotional toll of COVID-19 more than Kloots who, along with her infant child, lost her actor husband early on to the pandemic and, because of their high-profile status, had to manage her grief in the public eye.

Through her honesty, audiences come to see that even the most challenging times can be survived with hope and positivity.

This event will not be recorded, so make sure to watch live!
