Widowed at age 32, Kerry was determined to not allow grief to drag her under or for death to get a “bonus” spouse. In 2015, she realized there wasn’t a forum for young widows and widowers wanting to venture back into the world of dating and started Young, Widowed & Dating. The online support group provides a safe, supportive and nonjudgmental forum for the widowed community to share their dating adventures and misadventures.
An advocate for the widowed community, Kerry’s merchandise is designed to foster healthy dialogue between widows and the non-widowed community. By engaging in open, real, and honest discussions, she hopes the sigma and stereotypes of what it means to be young and widowed can be erased.
