About Me

Changing the way we view life by understanding death.

After nearly 30 years in the financial services industry, I finally found my purpose and passion.  

My path to get here was not an easy one, having watched three people I love face terminal diagnosis and death.  I was humbled and honoured that they allowed me to learn, support and accompany them on what I can only imagine was the most difficult journey of their lives.

From my experiences, I learned that there is a great need for advocacy, support, coordination and sometimes just a helping hand.  In times of shock and overwhelming stress, I work as an extension of the primary care providers to fill the gaps and bridge services.  

 

As a volunteer at a wonderful hospice in my community and a member of the Death Doula Network of BC, I am surrounded by smart, caring, compassionate individuals who I learn from every day.  I promise you I will work hard to find the resources and professionals available for the unique needs of each individual and family I support.
