"It has been my highest honor serving the dying and their families through hospice nursing since 2000, and as a private practice End-of-Life Doula since 2005. Through my leadership activities as first Chair of NHPCO’s End-of-Life Doula Advisory Council
, I am excited to be a part of bringing this new role to hospices and palliative care organizations around the country.
As a founding member and 1st Vice President of the National End-of-Life Doula Alliance, it has been a true joy to bring this role into the professional arena and bring standards, community ethics, and an understanding to empower all. Many years in the making, my bestselling book, “Accompanying the Dying: Practical Heart-centered Wisdom for End-of-Life Doulas and Healthcare Advocates,” is a guide that is transforming the understanding of how we care for our people in advanced illness.
This training program supports my free education and empowerment of others, and my dedication to ensure people have equal access to the information and guidance to care for each other through dying. Know that your study with me supports dying well all around the world. You will learn to Serve Others in 'The Doula Way.'"
