Stephanie Sarazin M.P.P.
Stephanie Sarazin, M.P.P., is the author of Soulbroken: A Guide for Your Journey Through Ambiguous Grief, a 2023 Nautilus Book Awards Gold Winner. She aims to support those grieving the loss of a loved one who is still living. She is a writer, researcher, and experiential expert in ambiguous grief. Her work began with her own experience of mid-life trauma, which sparked an ambitious journey— spiritually and around the world—to understand, name, and heal her grief. Her efforts revealed a first-of-its-kind definition of the “ambiguous grief process,” whereby grief is onset by the loss of a loved one who is still living and wherein the experience of hope presents as a stage of the grieving process. As a Certified Grief Educator, Stephanie brings new resources to reframe disruptive, activating events as a gateway to discovering your highest self, in turn championing ambiguous grief as nuanced, natural, and navigable.
Sarazin is a graduate of Michigan State University and earned a Master of Public Policy from The University of Chicago.
