For families desiring additional companionship for their loved one, I offer personalized doula services focused on creating experiences that bring a sense of fulfillment, peace, and comfort to aging adults’ final years and days. I hold a BA in Health Information Administration from the College of St. Scholastica, I have a working background in long term care and social services, and am a Certified End of Life Doula through the award-winning Doulagivers program. I also serve as a hospice volunteer for Allina Health Services. My husband and I reside in Minnetonka and cherish our three children. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, kayaking, reading, and writing.
My life’s calling came as a result of caring for my mother during her life’s end, along with my work and volunteerism in skilled nursing facilities.
The truth I’ve discovered through hundreds of conversations with aging adults is that the most important factors contributing to their happiness and well-being are: socialization, having a purpose, and the opportunity to be seen and heard deeply.
My belief is that these needs can be met with genuine companionship and holistic services designed to meet each aging individual’s unique needs and interests. I’ve made it my life’s mission to promote the final years as a sacred, honorable stage of life so that our elders are cherished and given the respect and dignity they deserve. Creating Age Well Doula Services has given my life new purpose and direction, and I couldn’t be happier companioning each aging adult I have the honor to serve.
