I grew up in Northern Ontario where we spent our summers on the lake in a small cabin, it was like visiting another world and where I became a water-baby,
I moved to Alberta, with me and my son's life, all packed into 5 suitcases. My dream, for some time was to be a carpenter, so I jumped in feet first. The skills and knowledge I gained are still paying off today.
As my family grew, I began a woodworking business creating artisan kitchen boards and wooden spoons to accompany our daily rituals around food.
These past 6 years I have been studying about death in: books, conversations, volunteering, attending workshops and talks. Recently certified as a:
Sacred Passage Death Doula
Conscious Dying Coach
Conscious Dying Educator
When asked, "What's your favourite thing to do?"
It would be having a real, raw, human conversation;
talking about what breaks our hearts wide open,
the hilarious blunders of life that shape us in all our losses
I look forward to connecting with you, where ever you may be in this deep hearted work.
Some Bits About Me
I live for road trips, deep conversations, live music, immature banter and an epic underdog story.
Unique, curious and weird wit will win me over every time.
I am irrationally afraid of people who scare me. Sometimes I can’t help but scare other’s and immediately regret it due to potential retaliation.
Water is my preferred habitat.
My friends lift me up and continually make me a better person.
I used to be terrified when my kids would say they heard something in the night, but acted like i wasn’t.
My favourite way to meditate is floating in water or in a bathtub.
I love strategic games.

"It should be a sacred day for you when one of your people die, a sacred
day when a soul is released and returns to its home." - Black Elk
