“There are three ways to ultimate success: The first way is to be kind. The second way is to be kind. The third way is to be kind.”

I am a graduate of the Community Worker program at George Brown College, and will be returning to school in May 2018 to complete a certificate in Nonprofit Management through Simon Fraser University.
I completed my training with Hospice Toronto in 2013 to be an in-home palliative care team volunteer. Since then I have been drawn to palliative/end-of-life causes, and the importance of dying with dignity and the right to access choices at the end of life.
I am extremely passionate about the importance of dialogue surrounding death and dying, and wish to see a proliferation of these conversations; I believe that talking about death can be liberating and empowering. I strongly believe in the concept of a good death and wish to pursue a career committed to supporting individuals through the dying process, to a good death. I believe, and have found significant research substantiating the fact that good deaths improve the long-term health and happiness of individuals, families, and communities at large.
