What is your specialization and why did you choose to work in this area?

I am an end-of-life specialist; I provide education and pre-planning assistance to ensure that individuals understand the options available and can make the appropriate decisions for their future. Death is one of the greatest fears people have. I want to remove this fear, or at least lessen it for as many people as I can.

Who benefits most from working with you?

Anyone over 18 benefits from pre-planning. It reduces the stress associated with end-of-life for individuals and families. People have peace of mind knowing that their wishes will be honored. Loved ones and family benefit from not having to guess about decisions.

What’s the first question new clients usually ask?

People often ask, “Where do we start?” I like to review any planning that has been done so far to confirm that it is understood and up to date. From there we can create a personalized “Living Well” plan, which even allows for celebration of life after you have passed.

What specific services do you provide and how are they priced?

We offer a variety of services to our clients based on their unique needs. We can assist with educational workshops, pre-planning Advance Directives, facilitating family meetings, pre-planning gifts or services delivered posthumously or End-of-Life Doula support. Prices are based on an hourly rate with packages available.
