End-of-Life Doula, CEOLC President and Co-Founder
My mission is to be a compassionate companion on life’s final journey. With a calm and loving presence, I advocate for the dying person and his/her personal choices about End-of-Life decisions and care, as well as providing much-needed support for the loved ones. I hope to inspire others to see death as a natural transition with its own innate gifts and beauty, rather than something to be feared and avoided.
