"Building trust, being allowed into someone's life when they are most vulnerable, filled with fear of the unknown, is an incredible privilege. 
It is one I never take lightly."

 I had the privilege of journeying        alongside of my mother as she          battled cancer for three years. It was only in her last months that I became employed an educated in the Hospice field. Even with limited experience, I knew, and accepted, the responsibility of being a mostly long distance caregiver, as well as the "go to" person for navigation and decision making. The end result was a dignified and prepared death for my mother, and allowed our family to avoid added stress, regrets and complicated grief.

In the 17 years that followed, I have    accompanied numerous patients and their families as they too were faced  with situations beyond their control.  Providing education, support and        empowering others to maintain a        sense of control in an uncontrollable  situation is my passion and calling.  I  feel obligated to use my wealth of      

 experience in helping others in any   way I can.
