Author Biography

I’m Victoria Benoit, Mind/Body Repatterning Practitioner and #1 Bestselling Author/Publisher, residing in Phoenix, Arizona. I am an optimistic woman living a rich life, filled with passion, love, and adventure. I enjoy dancing, singing, and hiking. My friends and family are especially dear to me, no matter what we’re doing.

I grew up in Milwaukee, WI, with my younger brother and two sisters. At 20 years old, I seized an opportunity to move to Chicago, knowing no one. While having a successful career in medical ultrasound, I was forced to change professions due to a physical injury at work. I moved to Phoenix, AZ and obtained my master's degree and began working as a Licensed Professional Counselor.

I was quickly frustrated with my clients’ lack of progress. This guided me to become a Certified Repatterning Practitioner. I found this method to be highly-effective in restoring my clients’ well-being.

I wanted another way to make a bigger difference, so I published the Extraordinary Outcomes Series; What Would Love Do Right Now? A Guide to Living an Extraordinary Life and Three Magical Words for a Magical Life. Two years later my memoir came out, No Weeping Widow Here ~ My True Story. All three books reached #1 on Amazon.

By offering these books, I believe I am impacting people on a more global scale. I absolutely love the difference I make in the world. I am committed to helping people live a life they love, filled with joy, adventure and fulfillment.

Victoria Benoit's No Weeping Widow Here is a heartwarming, awe-inspiring story about loss and a beautiful love journey. Victoria shares stories and thoughtful words about losing her husband, their 10 years together, and life after his demise. Four years after meeting at a personal development course in 2003, Victoria and Bernie found themselves enjoying each other's company and fun travels to different locations. Though their marriage brought them to face each other's flaws, they shared wonderful memories by finding ways to communicate better and accommodate each other's differences. The final eight months of Bernie's life were anything but easy as he battled sarcoma—a very deadly and aggressive cancer. Thankfully, friends and family were able to have a proper farewell and share heartfelt messages before his passing. Victoria's tale encourages appreciating life and all the special people around us while they're still here.

In No Weeping Widow Here, a touching experience is told beautifully in a tone that's both friendly and lyrical. And since the story is written linearly, the reader can easily enjoy a smooth read and a comfortable expectation of what comes next. The book's themes are deeply engrossing, including health care, traveling, family, dating, Christianity, love, writing, loss, compassion, and more. Victoria Benoit's resilience and strength shine through as she narrates the challenging battles of dealing with a husband's deteriorating health and a mother's fading memories while struggling with financial issues. Her story serves as a fountain of inspiration and strength that readers in similar, difficult circumstances can tap into. I strongly recommend it to widows and individuals who have lost someone close to them or battled a serious health challenge. This brilliantly written book made me smile, cry, and cherish a life of love and appreciation.
