I am very proud to be a full member of the EOL Doula Association of Canada. I bring to my practice a career-long immersion in teaching medical/dental students about the heart and circulatory system. In my work life I teach about the science of the heart, however, in my Doula practice I focus on the emotion and spiritual side of the heart. Through my training as a Student Affairs Advisor to the medical school, I have honed my “generous listening” skills, and bring a willingness to be completely present in end-of-life discussions. I believe in providing a safe and comforting environment for advanced care planning. I also have an interest in art-making as a way to process difficult issues. Post-COVID-Vaccine, I look forward to resuming my volunteer work at the Vancouver Hospice. I practice both in Vancouver and on Sunshine Coast.
