As a holistic end-of-life and deathcare specialist, I offer consultation and education about natural post-death care by family, and eco-conscious disposition of the body. A former hospital Social Services Director and VNA/Hospice Administrator, my family background includes home births, deaths, and after death care. I learned how caring for our own dead helps to ease bereavement and move us towards a healthy assimilation of our grief after the death of a loved one.

I am passionate about teaching and reviving the ancient art of natural deathcaring, and the many benefits therein for families, communities, and the environment
