Tida Beattie and Soyeon Davis are cultural bereavement educators, peer grief support facilitators, and end-of-life doulas.
Tida and Soyeon are daughters of Thai and Korea immigrants, respectively. They co-founded MESO because of their personal experiences witnessing critical gaps in the health, death, and grief care systems throughout their parents' lives. Their work is focused on providing culturally attuned resources and support to inter-generational immigrant families, their caregivers, and their grievers addressing loss and grief.
