Hello! My name is Kevin Ringstaff, and I am the Founder and CEO of PetCloud and Grieving@Work. I spend my days talking and grief, and educating people on how to support friends, family, and co-workers through their grief. Mostly though, my daily job is to listen to the stories of love and loss by other people.
I recently moved to San Francisco to build and grow this community into a place where anyone, anywhere can come and share their grief and get support from others who really do understand the pain and anguish we go through when we lose someone we love.
Through my studies and counseling over the years, I’ve learned quite a lot about grief. It’s safe to say that as a society, we all have a tendency to hold on to grief. It’s awkward and uncomfortable to talk about. We feel like we might be judged especially if we tell other people how much we are hurting because of our losses.
