Kloots on Coping
Hospice of Santa Barbara’s free virtual “Illuminate” Speaker Series steps up the star quotient with its next presentation on Wednesday, April 20: Amanda Kloots, the TV host, Broadway actress, award-winning fitness entrepreneur, and recently a finalist on the 30th season of Dancing with the Stars. Kloots might also be the speaker who has been most directly affected by the COVID pandemic. She will be sharing the story of losing her husband unexpectedly to the virus and reflecting on the overwhelming loss, as well as love, hope, parenting, and the need for a community during struggles. Last summer, Kloots, who is currently co-host of CBS’ Daytime Emmy Award-winning The Talk, published her memoir, Live Your Life: My Story of Loving and Losing Nick Cordero, which was co-authored with her sister Anna Kloots and became a New York Times bestseller.
