Former FBI agent Sonja Nordstrom has faced many challenging situations in her 24-year career, and even more as a search and rescue K9 handler. She and her canine companions have traveled the nation from assisting in body recovery at 9/11 ground zero to extensive field experiences in the collection of forensic evidence. Now in retirement, she works as a dog trainer of all ages, breeds, and temperaments. Amid the many heartbreaking and harrowing experiences, over the years she has developed a unique insight into resiliency in the face of disappointment, and shares today on our podcast, tips to cultivate perspective amid the disasters of life.
Even though we live in challenging times we can become Relentlessly Resilient as we lean on and learn from one another’s experiences. Hosts Jennie Taylor and Michelle Scharf are no strangers to overcoming adversity; Michelle lost her husband to cancer, while Jennie’s husband Major Brent Taylor was killed in the service of our country. Their stories bond them together and now listeners can join them weekly as they visit with others enduring challenges and who teach us how they are exercising resiliency, finding value in their grief, and purpose in moving forward.
