Outspoken and powerful, she is a best-selling author of five books, including the New York Times Bestseller, Between Heaven & Ground Zero and Baker Books bestseller, God has NOT forgotten About You. Her writings on life after loss have been used in ALL YOU Magazine and Marie Claire and her recovery journey is the subject of a nationally distributed documentary.Haskin is also founder of The UNRacialize Project and a much sought after business collaborator. In addition to providing leadership at UNRacialize, she is a strategic partner for fortune 500 companies and nonprofits like Save the Children, Dunn & Bradstreet and Deutsche Bank.
Her faith, courage and strength to overcome are the driving forces behind her commitment to rise above circumstance and inspire others to do the same. And her philosophy is a simple one, “…life is a journey through things that we like and things that we don’t like. It’s everything or its nothing at all.”
