Throughout my life, I have been drawn to creating deeper connections through personal, spiritual and religious education and personal experience. I graduated from UVA with a BA in Religious Studies and completed a two year Spiritual Nurting Program. For more than a decade, I had the privilege of teaching and exploring spiritual and religious experiences with elementary and high school students in Quaker schools in eastern Pennsylvania. I am currently active as a Hospice Volunteer with Hospice of Central Pennsylvania and provide bereavement support through that organization. I completed the Coaching at End of Life certification in 2015 and found the coach approach to be a wonderful way to serve and support Hospice patients and family members. I am particularly interested in offering support for those experiencing disenfranchised grief. Disenfranchised grief can be experienced in so many ways, including the loss of a divorced spouse or extended family member, a former lover, a cherished animal companion. My work is to provide a safe, accepting and confidential space to allow the process of grief and mourning to proceed in its own unique and needed way.
