“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 gently encourage people to talk about death.  These conversation include what makes life worth living, core values, and future health care wishes – it’s all about and how people want to live, right up until the end.”

Take the journey


“Whether tomorrow, next month, next year or years from now, we will all face our own inevitable death.  So let’s get comfortable with the uncomfortable, and prepare for a life well lived and a death well planned for.   Death is not the opposite of life, it is part of it. “

Victoria, BC - End of life planning and care

“As a funeral director, I am committed to providing transparent post-death options rooted in experience and compassion. As a Death Doula, I aim to empower individuals to first identify, then share their end of life values with those who need to know. I facilitate comfortable, family-inclusive conversations.  I also provide guidance and support for post-death body care.
