Shaking In The Forest

Shaking In The Forest

What do you do when faced with trauma?

Shaking in the Forest opens with a plane crash and ends with a life-threatening illness. At the age of twenty-five, Lori Hodges chose to make a career helping people during the worst days of their lives. She has spent the last thirty years in emergency services—first as a firefighter and paramedic and later as an emergency manager, helping to coordinate the response and recovery to disasters. It is through this work that she has come to see the beauty in tragedy.

Each of us will face difficulty in our lives, but it is often the most difficult of times that teach us the greatest lessons. And, it is through our connections to others that we are able to step forward into a new day. Connecting the lessons Lori learned as a paramedic with her own personal trauma, Shaking in the Forest brings light to the darkness to help each of us find a way to thrive even during our most difficult days.
