Out of this trauma came her passion for working with people who are dealing with trauma, loss and bereavement.She had another daughter 2 years later and feels very blessed due to the arrival and expansion of the family in the form of 4 granddaughters, who seem to be her biggest teachers right now.
Liese has specialised in conducting training and seminars in trauma, loss, grief and bereavement as well as palliative care and resilience in the workplace. She also conducts public speaking engagements on topics such as: Facilitating Hope, Strengthening Resilience, Mindfulness, Empathy and Compassion.
