I became interested in the mysteries of death and dying in childhood, beginning with the death of my grandmother.  I am inspired to help others prepare for their end of life journey by my son who died at the age of eighteen months. My grief led to my work as a facilitator with HOPE (Helping Other Parents Endure), a support group for bereaved parents.  During that period, I began my yoga and meditation practice, which led to my teaching children and adults. I hold a Missouri Lifetime Teacher’s Certificate and have extensive experience leading individuals through significant life cycle rituals as a Rabbinic Aide.

As a graduate of the Conscious Dying Institute, I am honored now to bring my loving care, compassion and healing presence to those facing this final journey of their lives.
