Reid Peterson is no stranger to grief and has had several, very different experiences with loss in his lifetime. Reid experienced death first at the age of 10 when a friend and classmate died of spinal meningitis. He went on to lose his biological father to suicide in 2006 and his stepfather to cancer in 2016. He felt compelled to help the grieving find peace and purpose after loss. Reid achieved a Masters Degree in Transpersonal Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in 2007 and is certified in Death & Grief Studies by the Center for Loss & Life Transition.
He has since gone on to create Grief Refuge – the best mobile app to help you cope with the loss of a loved one.

Find out how Reid was inspired to create the app and how it can help you through your grief.
