What inspired you to get into this line of work?

Before I became a doula there were nine times I had been with people I care about as they died. And in those times I found myself emptying out so that what those people and their loved ones needed flowed through me very naturally. My relationship with death and comfort with the dying are part of my calling as a Death Companion. It has been my profound honor to walk with the dying and those they love on that final journey.

What's one piece of insight you wish all families knew?

You have the right to choose. Each life is finite, and you may decide how your ending will be.

What excites you most about working with Addio families?

It gives me great pleasure to not only educate and share what a doula does, but also find new places my skill set can dovetail with the needs of those facing End of Life issues.
I am especially interested in expanding accessibility in the field of Death Care, working with doulas and interpreters to facilitate inclusion of the Deaf, and using video and other technology to help those far away be part of the process.
