Death is our friend precisely because it brings us into absolute and passionate presence

with all that is here, that is natural, that is love.

                                                                                                                 - Rainer Maria Rilke

I am a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother and a friend.

My family is the centre of my universe.


I enjoy spending time with my favourite people. Cooking for my family and friends feeds me.  I love spending time in nature.  Hiking is my moving meditation.  

I feel as though my life up until this point, both personal and professional, has led me perfectly here - to a place where I can encourage people to openly talk about death, clearly evaluate how they want to live their lives right up until the end, and then help facilitate making these wishes a reality.


It is my hope to help put this end-of-life phenomena in a more positive and empowering light and to help prepare people for dying more consciously and peacefully.
