On this week’s episode

  • On this week’s episode of You Have a Cool Job, we talk to Shari O’Loughlin. Shari is the Executive Director of the Children’s Grief Center of New Mexico.
  • Despite the fact that Shari deals with loss and tragedy, she couldn’t be more positive and ready to help and connect with others.
  • Shari talks about her role as the head of the Children’s Grief Center, and how she got involved. She talks about her personal experiences with loss and how her vulnerability allows her to connect with others. Shari discusses different approaches to dealing with grief, and how this affects youths.
  • Shari also talks about the book she wrote, Life from the Ashes: Finding Signs of Hope After Loss, and how she uses the book to help grieving families find hope.

About the show

You Have a Cool Job is a podcast hosted by Taylor Sienkiewicz from Peterson’s. The show highlights professionals who have a unique, interesting, uncommon, or otherwise cool job.

Our goal is to motivate you and show how interesting, fulfilling, and anything-but-average your career can be, and we’ll do this by talking with people who took a path less traveled. We ask these fascinating individuals how they got to where they are in their career based on their education, experience, and influences;  why they love their job; and lots more.
