I am a Bodyworker and Career Coach. By 2023 I will also be a Death Doula.

Finding my career in health and wellness was windy and had a lot of bumps and turns. After graduating college I got a job as an IT consultant. I traveled all over the U.S., worked with CIOs, CTOs from the East Coast to the West Coast. I had a lot of co-workers who loved their jobs. But I never did and it wore me away. I struggled to figure out what was next. Slowly I became more and more depressed. Eventually I hit rock bottom. I was barely functional and so unhappy.

So I quit my job. I knew that if I were to figure out my life, then I needed to change the way I was doing life. And I needed to get rid of the things that weren’t serving me. The number one thing in the way, was my job.

In July of 2016, I started digging myself out from the bottom.

One day I was helping my friend with her booth at a Yoga Festival. And I asked her about the massage license she had. She said, “Actually I don’t do massage, I only do Craniosacral Therapy. I think you’d be really good at it.” I had no idea what she was talking about, but I decided to look into it. After my first class, I fell down the rabbit hole of bodywork and hands-on healing. And that was it. I’ve been practicing since 2017, and I love it.

As I was turning my career around, I met more and more people who wanted to do the same. But it was hard for me to help them, so then I got a Coaching Certification. It’s been a privilege to help others who are ready to find their calling.

My journey is still evolving. In 2021, I discovered that there aren’t just Birth Doulas. There are Death Doulas, and I’m studying to become one. A doula is a non-medical support person. As a Death Doula, I’ll be supporting a dying person and their family as they navigate the final journey. Walk this journey with me through my Newsletter. Subscribe below.
