FORT MYERS, Fla., June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Late on Sunday, May 31st, Air France Flight 447, on its way from Rio de Janeiro to Paris, disappeared from the radar during a lightning storm. With 228 people on board, this is potentially the deadliest commercial air disaster since November 2001 when an American Airlines jetliner crashed in New York City, killing 265 people. For the families and friends of those lost in the accident, a long nightmare of grief is just beginning.
After surviving one of the worst small plane crashes in FAA history, author, counselor, and motivational speaker Tamra Nashman knows not only what it's like to experience an air tragedy firsthand, but also how traumatized family members are afterward, because her parents barely survived the same crash. While Nashman came through the accident virtually unscathed, she had to watch her parents suffer in the hospital for weeks on end. Their lives were hanging by a thread because of the severe injuries and burns they sustained in the accident.
With a new appreciation for life and empathy for those who have experienced tremendous loss and grief, Nashman has coached hundreds of people through tragedies and helped them find peaceful resolve and release. She is uniquely qualified to understand this kind of trauma from both sides of the experience and can tell your audience:
CREDENTIALS: Nashman is the author of Shoes for the Spirit, an inspirational book that guides each reader through their own personal spiritual journey with motivational stories of ordinary people coming through extraordinary adversity to triumph. Nashman is a licensed and ordained minister who has experienced relationship trauma, interfaith marriage difficulties, and the loss of a child. For over 20 years she has been a motivational speaker, counselor, and life-coach who has helped countless people find hope in the face of hopelessness.
