Keri Lauderdale Olson/Recovering Cinderella


Once upon a time…we all know that is how all fairy tales start, right?  And they always end with “they lived happily ever after.”   Most little girls grow up reading (or watching) fairy tales.  We dream of the day we will find our own Prince Charming and live happily ever after.  We want and EXPECT the happy ending.  That is how it is supposed to be.  But what happens when happily ever after ends?  How do you build a new life when the fairy tale is over? 

Hi!  I am Keri Lauderdale Olson aka the original Recovering Cinderella!  I am a twice-divorced woman who is passionate about helping women build new lives they love after divorce.  Recovering Cinderella was born 10 years ago out of my own journey learning to LOVE life when "happily ever after" ended.  From grieving the death of my dreams and my family to finding and loving the woman I became after my divorces.  I am passionate about providing resources for women that I wished I had when I was going through my own divorces.

Thousands of women around the world follow me on my social media channels for divorce inspiration and humor. I am a Certified Professional Life Coach specializing in helping women with divorce recovery.  During my weekly podcast I interview other Recovering Cinderellas that have made it through divorce and built new lives.  My goal is to share real stories of strength and inspiration from women who have been through divorce for women who are going through it.

I have recently added a unique support network where women can connect in facilitated virtual small groups to support each other through their journeys.  Additionally, I am offering personal coaching for women who want a customized approach to divorce recovery and building a new life. 

If you want to know a little more about me...I am a mother to three amazing men in their 20's that I raised on my own.  A Kansas City native, I spent 20 years in marketing and innovation in the corporate world.  I am an inventor on multiple patents, a lover of perfectly paired chocolate and wine and I have a heart for empowering women.

I hope you join our tribe and keep growing forward, Beautiful!
