Facing and managing end of life issues is a dynamic process for the professional and family alike.

This workshop is designed to bring greater awareness, simplicity and compassion to help all overcome fear and misinformation about the end of life. You will receive tools to become compassionate guides, providing gentle and respectful approaches, self-awareness and education.

Information Center

Passionate about end of life issues, I’ve spent most of my almost 40 years in nursing focused on improving end of life care. Witnessing too often how fear, misinformation, and lack of information can negatively impact decision-making and the dying experience, I have been committed to improving care through education. This is personal as well as professional. I have not only experienced the dying of beloved patients, I have been the daughter, granddaughter, niece, friend, peer of those who have faced end of life challenges, whether the end of a chronic illness or a suicide. Each experience has revealed the variety of questions, fears, needs and distress that need to be better addressed so that we canhelp people better talk about and prepare for the end of life in a way that honors their own beliefs, traditions and desires.
