Amy Florian

When Florian faced the tragic death of her young husband, she painfully realized how few professionals are equipped to provide support. Leveraging this experience, Florian pursued the highest level of grief studies education. Combining the most respected research in thanatology, psychology, neuroscience, and sociology with her personal knowledge, her professional experience derived from 20 years of supporting more than 2000 grieving individuals, and a generous dose of humor and grace, Florian launched Corgenius in 2008. The training she provides changes the way professionals interact with clients during life’s most challenging events. The results are lifetime client loyalty, enthusiastic referrals, and the satisfaction of serving clients in ways that others don’t.

No fluff, no relying on studies or text books – her “to the point” and “matter of fact” conversational tone brings people in.

She encourages audience participants to define issues and create a path for action to ensure the information they just learned isn’t lost.
