Janet O'Dell

End of Life Practitioner, Death Educator

Dynamic Journey Doula in Comox, CA

As a professional I bring years of experience as a dental assistant, creating comfort and safety for those in need. In my own unique way I communicate, teach and advocate with a sense of light hearted humour. As an educator, facilitator and mentor, I support others in living and dying in a supportive and loving way. Whatever the age, from infancy to elder, I can meet you where you are, connect with you, guide and support you in living and in dying.


"Janet is truly a special gift to our society. Her ability to hold a safe presence and to listen with deep compassion made me feel comfortable"

What inspired you to get into this line of work?

It was from witnessing death intimately, and the culmination of my life experiences, that I realized I was on the journey of my life's work, namely a 'dynamic journey'. Fulfilling my call to be an End of Life Practitioner, it would therefore be an honour to walk with you and your loved ones' through their dynamic journey.
