Gregg & Sherrie Piburn



Gregg Piburn is author of Beyond Chaos: One Man’s Journey Alongside His Chronically Ill Wife (published by the Arthritis Foundation). Since 1991 he has been owner of Leader’s Edge Consulting, Inc., providing training, facilitation and coaching for leaders and groups in private and public organizations. Before that he was an award-winning PR Manager for Hewlett-Packard Company and an award-winning journalist. He also had “brief” stints as a movie actor, country-western singer, rodeo bull rider and Denver Bronco wide receiver … but that’s another story. Gregg grew up in Boulder, Colorado.


Sherrie Piburn is a longtime professional educator who owns an estate gardening business near Rocky Mountain National Park in the summer. For many years, she suffered significant health problems related to fibromyalgia and arthritis and also battled depression. Since 1985, Sherrie has also had several major back surgeries. As her health has improved in recent years, she has once again gotten involved in theatre (especially enjoying comedic roles) and helping present workshops with her husband, Gregg, about their experiences dealing with chronic illness. Sherrie grew up in Longmont, Colorado.

Their Family

Gregg and Sherrie have three grown children (who were introduced to Beyond Chaos readers when they were kids), a son-in-law, a daughter-in-law, and two grandchildren. All but their Marine son and his wife live in Colorado.
