About the Speakers
Taprina Milburn, is author of Scientists Use Rats, I Use My Family and We’re Not Being Raised Right, compilations of essays written as a young mom while raising her family. Now the 50-something mom of two grown, married children, Taprina explores with audiences the topics of rebuilding a life after empty-nest and loss. After a 27-year marriage, she lost her husband, Kermit, in 2016 to suicide. A writer for more than three decades, she created the blog Reimagining to work through her own grief and share stories of resilience to help others “reimagine” a new life after major changes. Taprina is a believer and is certain God locks hands with us through valleys and celebrates with us on mountain tops. She firmly believes God built us to overcome difficult times and come through with joy, insight and faith intact (even if it doesn't always seem that way). She currently works for an Oklahoma City nonprofit and facilitates family caregiver support groups and coordinates education seminars for family caregivers. She lives in Edmond, OK., with Scout, her 5-year-old Golden Retriever, who is very much her empty-nest coping mechanism. Taprina is a member of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church.
