I am the founding board chair of Reimagine End of Life. I've spent my professional career as a psychologist and pastoral counselor supporting people in having difficult conversations about love, loss, and conflict. My work in hospice and palliative care has taught me that there are few things more sacred than helping people move gently from life into death. And so, I've been drawn toward end-of-life care, community education, and advanced care planning, perhaps the most difficult conversation we must each have with our loved ones, yet by far one of the most important. When I attended the first Reimagine End of Life festival in 2016, I was moved by the hundreds of people there, laughing, crying, and considering some of life's most complex and beautiful questions: Why are we here? What makes life worth living? Would we want to live forever? I knew at that moment that I wanted in!
