I have 15 years of experience in various aspects of nursing and leadership obtained during my career as an officer in the Canadian Armed Forces. I have experience in crisis and personnel management from my time as a leader educating and directing several hundred subordinates.
As a Registered Nurse and adult educator, my knowledge base includes primary care, mental health skills, support and mindfulness training, as well as experience in working with individuals with physical and developmental disabilities and mental illness.
I have worked with patients and families, through palliative care, which is where my passion lies.
I have recently completed training as an End-of-Life Doula through Douglas College in BC. I am now able to humbly-assist and guide you or your family, in a meaningful life and death experience through end of life care education, support, guidance (life-coaching) and non-medical whole body, mind & spiritual care.
Diagnosis, chronic illness, and nearing end of life, can be overwhelming. Fear of the unknown, intense emotions, conflict, feelings of isolation, unpreparedness and lack of peace of mind can cause people to feel exhausted, stressed, and sometimes traumatized. Dignity in death is important to me; I wish to help make this transition in death less fearful and more peaceful.
To assist in a meaningful healthcare and death experience through education, support and non-medical whole body, mind & spirit care.
Education, preparation and support are key to changing the perception of illness, death and dying;
A 'good death' is possible with end-of-life care support and a life coach who specializes in death and dying.
