Zander Sprague

Zander Sprague is the GO TO Speaker, Author and Coach for Sibling Loss. His mission is to help sibling survivors define their loss, choose a positive pathway and fully participate in their life. In December of 1996, Zander’s sister was murdered. All of a sudden, he found himself thrust into a very unfamiliar world; depression, loneliness, lifelessness, feeling of despair. Although he had a lot of love and support of his family and friends, he found that he alone had to choose a positive pathway to healing and recovery. Then in October of 2007, just as the first edition of his book, Making Lemonade: Choosing A Positive Pathway After Losing Your Sibling was coming out, his sister in-law had a massive cerebral hemorrhage and died at the age of 35. She left a husband and a 3-year-old daughter behind. Again, Zander had to choose a positive pathway to recover from this horrible loss. Zander has studied many modalities of coaching and is currently on track to get his certification as a From Heartbreak to Happiness® grief coach from the Grief Coach Academy. With his own personal experience of loss and this training, it has allowed Zander to help other sibling survivors to choose their own Positive Pathway™ to a rewarding life.
