Wendy Parmley suffered a disabling bike accident in September 2011. Unable to return to her 20 year nursing career because of her injuries, Wendy began writing her book, which details her own healing journey following her mother’s suicide. She now sees suicide prevention and suicide survivors’ support as her new life’s work. Wendy has long advocated for suicide prevention and has participated on various professional and community based groups dedicated to that end. She also recognizes the need to unashamedly support those who must continue to live in the painful aftermath of a loved one’s suicide and passionately lends her voice to that cause. Prior to her accident, Wendy worked in nursing, earning her MBA from Brigham Young University in 2007.
