I have spent the past 15 years of my 20 year Nursing career in the Hospice field.  Having felt that I had outgrown the traditional Hospice model and opportunities as an LPN, I was blessed to have found my true calling as an End of Life Doula - a person that helps people navigate end of life physically, emotionally and spiritually.   My mission is to be a voice that advocates for removing the stigma from end of life discussions, empowering people and their loved ones to make educated choices, to make their wishes known, before they are faced with serious illness as well as when they are in crisis.   

In addition to private consulting, I am a resource to Healthcare companies wishing to learn more about how EOL Doulas can benefit their clientele and improve their overall model of practice.  

My areas of expertise include: direct patient care, as well as initial consults / assessments, community education,  and educational in-services for healthcare professionals. I and am very familiar with Medicare / Medicaid guidelines as they pertain to the Hospice benefit and medication management. I have a vast knowledge of the physiology of disease processes, serious and terminal illness, palliative care, assistance with Advance Directives i.e.: Living Wills, 5 wishes, Power Of Attorney, LAPOST (formerly DNR), and making final arrangements.  I have also informally counselled those with pre / post bereavement, and complicated grief.
