A little about me

For years, I was an empty shell. Anxiety latched onto me and made it impossible for me to enjoy life. Depression made it so I didn't even want to try.

"Ah, but if you try something new, you may be able to let go of something old."

Prior to being Angler X's partner in crime, I was the owner of Forward Focus LLC. I am a Certified Life Coach, a Specialist in fitness nutrition, Motivational Speaker, and an Author.

I love learning to be self-sufficient. I am a writer, bow hunter, fisher, camper, gardener, pro-hammock napper, motorcycle rider, and book nerd who loves bacon cheeseburgers, farm-to-table restaurants, and chocolate- not necessarily in that order.

For me, life is all about overcoming challenges, seeking adventure, and loving as deeply as I can.

"She's Done Pretending is a permission slip. It's a permission slip for readers to step out of their abuses, heartaches, and abandonments...and step into the light of a better life. Bergler's story, although difficult to read at times, shines a light on one woman's story of perseverance and triumph over unbelievable odds. She uses her story to show us, the readers, that there can be "life after internal death." Through graceful writing and a fiery spirit, Bergler inspires us to see that life is what you make of it." - Sarah Krosschell
