Kelli Nielsen    

Founder of The Grief Guru, Author of "You're Not Crazy You're Grieving" & Founder of Qs Army Non-Profit

Kelli Nielsen didn’t grow up with visions of becoming The Grief Guru, but life had other plans. After losing her mother to suicide in 2017 she found herself swept out in a sea of grief. Barely able to get through the days she looked for help and was discouraged when she didn’t find the support or tools to recover.

Thankfully, an encounter with an inspiring speaker showed her that healing was in fact available to her. She decided then and there to dedicate herself to recovering from grief. She studied, prayed, documented her process and progress, and began to recover.

Her recovery came not a moment too soon as just a year later her 20 year old son Quintin died of an accidental drug overdose.

After his passing, Nielsen applied the recovery skills she had learned. As she shared Quintin’s life story and her message of hope with many, she discovered her life’s calling.

Nielsen has since become a speaker, author, and coach. Her book, "You’re Not Crazy, You’re Grieving", shares the process she used to heal from her tremendous losses. She also founded The Grief Guru, a company focused on helping others learn to move forward on purpose, in purpose and love their lives after loss. The Grief Guru and facilitator team members offer courses on loss and grief; a grief recovery community, weekend grief retreats, as well as physical products and tools to help those who are dealing with loss.
