To serve as a guide for the dying and their loved ones to facilitate a peaceful passing. Think of me as an end-of-life coach.
I'm here to hold space for others, creating a safe container to express the emotions, thoughts, and feelings that arise when we are faced with death. It is my honor to be physically, emotionally, and spiritually present for those seeking support.
Part of my soul's mission is to reduce suffering, and to care for the dying and support the transition out of the physical body. My work is to bring dignity and honor to the death process and help guide you through the experience with grace and love.
Safety: physically & emotionally
Honesty: communicating from the heart with sincerity
Dignity: honoring others through respect
Prevention: preparing and planning to avoid distressing pain & overwhelming stress
Ceremony: death is a sacred part of life
Who I Am
I am a healer, an explorer, an empath, a life enthusiast, and I have a lot of love to give. My pleasures include cultivating genuine human connections, immersing myself in nature, and adventuring with my partner, Sam, and our canine sidekick, Willy.
I attended James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia and earned a B.S. in Psychology. I worked in veterinary medicine for 6 years after college until deciding to put myself through nursing school, becoming a Registered Nurse in 2017. The majority of my nursing experience is in oncology and bone marrow transplant/myelosuppression - which is very close to my heart as I was a two-time bone marrow donor for my little sister who died from leukemia. In 2019 I bought a 1999 Ford E-150 conversion van that I named Dharma, for Willy and I to live in while I worked as a travel nurse. During that time I worked hospital contracts all over the country and spent my free time adventuring in nature with my K9 sidekick. It was in my travels that I met my husband, Sam - a powerful healer, energy and body worker, and Licensed Massage Therapist. Sam and I often work together to provide comfort and safety for those navigating death and dying. Currently, in addition to my end-of-life services, I work at a residential psychiatric hospital for teens as well as provide mobile hydration and vitamin IVs in my area.
I believe everyone deserves to have a positive and dignified death, and everyone should feel loved and supported at the time of transition. I will meet you exactly where you are in your process and provide a safe container for you to move through the death and dying experience.
What I Do
I work with individuals who are either caregivers for dying loved ones, or are in end-stages of terminal illness themselves.
I help guide you through the dying process: what to expect, how to plan, help you find meaning and closure in this lifetime, and support you at the time of death.
I provide dignified care and can help manage discomfort and symptoms at end-of-life. Through prevention, early intervention, and tight symptom management I work to ease pain and suffering.
Where I'm Located
I serve the residents of Ogden, Utah and the northern Salt Lake City area.
