I am following my heart’s calling to companion and guide those who are dying and their families. I feel blessed and honored to have been with my 90 year old mother, Joan Ann Royce, as she made her transition in May, 2018. I am currently being trained as a Certified End of Life Doula.
I have worked, and still do, as an American Sign Language interpreter since 1980. Among many other vocational undertakings, I lived in and managed a group home for developmentally disabled men for 19 years.
I gave birth to my two sons at home with a midwife and doula. At the time, I thought it radical to go that route but the more I researched hospital births and learned about the many unnecessary interventions my baby and I would face, the more radical that avenue appeared.
Birth, like death, is a natural process. Both are potent portals we all negotiate. I desire to ease the potential difficulties along the path of dying and make the journey one of connection and beauty.
