Victoria Volk ,

Wonderful Guesting Experience!

I enjoyed my time as a guest on Martika’s show. I felt like I was having coffee with a friend, talking about an important topic - grief! I enjoyed sharing my story, in hopes it helps someone out there feel less alone and have hope that they, too, are capable of releasing the pain of their experiences.
