About Me

I live in rural Vermont with my beloveds. I am the author of Map of Memory Lane (a picture book about loss and the memories we cherish) and Cultivating the Doula Heart: Essentials of Compassionate Care (a doula guidebook), developer of the University of Vermont’s end-of-life doula training programs, a community doula, and a researcher with the Vermont Conversation Lab. When I’m not writing, educating, or supporting clients, you might find me hiking in the woods with my pup or tending life in my gardens.
