Ami Claxton

The Mad Widow

Ami Claxton Bw

Ami Claxton, MS, PhD is strong, independent, gutsy survivor of all that life has thrown at her. With a truly unique sense of humor, she dissects the pains and gains of being a widow, a mom, a disability advocate, and a working professional while deftly dealing with also having a mental illness. While enjoying her raucous writings about her everyday antics, you will undoubtedly come away with a new appreciation for how to truly live life fully despite challenges. After the loss of her husband, she dealt with her grief in part by blogging as “The Mad Widow” and creating a thriving Facebook community called “The Mad Widow: Grief for Misfits.” Ami is completely obsessed with marching band and shoes and for her 50th birthday later this year, she is climbing a mountain in New Zealand (on purpose).
