Meet Barb Allen

Once upon a time, Grief had its way with Barb. Today she is Grief’s Worst Enemy.

Barb Allen’s first husband, Lt Louis Allen, was murdered by a fellow American soldier while in Iraq. The Commanding Officer was also killed in the attack.                   

SSG Alberto Martinez was arrested and tried for their murders. He was later acquitted in spite of submitting a guilty plea. This compounded tragedy sent Barb into a 10-year tailspin, during which she did her best to raise her four young sons.

Now that she has rebuilt her life, learned how to flip her pain into power, and her kids are grown, Barb is ready to share those hard-learned lessons about grief that will not only help you through the loss of someone you love but understand how to train all the pain in your life before it trains you.

Recently remarried, Barb and her husband Dave Brown launched the Great American Syndicate and hosted the Great American Summit.


We are all grieving- even if we don't think we are. Barb will show you how to not just navigate your grief, but how to turn it into techniques for conquering everyday challenges. You'll even have some laughs along the way!
