Dr. Ashley Wellman found herself in a new hometown with a new job, when all of the sudden her husband died tragically right in front of her and her daughter. As a criminologist and expert working with survivors of unsolved homicides, Ashley is well acquainted with loss and grief. But becoming a widow at the age of 34, completely blindsided her. Inspired by her daughter’s love for her “best friend” - an inanimate poseable skeleton - Ashley turned her grief into art and started writing a children’s book: "The Girl Who Dances with Skeletons: My Friend Fresno". In this episode, Ashley talks about losing her husband, how she picked up the pieces after this tragic loss and how Fresno changed everything.
