Much speculation surrounds the ‘new normal’ emerging in the wake of the COVID- 19 pandemic. If there can be one ‘silver lining’ taken from this collective time of incredible loss of life and opportunity, it lies in the societal consciousness of end of life issues and preparedness for death- both topics that can benefit individuals and families experiencing a loss of life. In fact, several palliative studies show that adults with higher levels of death denial experience lower levels of self esteem and higher levels of depression. Ok, enough of this depressing stuff.


 . . .if you know me, I like to talk AND solve problems AND travel so I decided to combine these interests into one big venture and put under the umbrella of my business, Executrixie.  In collaboration with the Willow EOL Education and Planning, I take great pleasure in announcing my certification as an Willow Educator to better serve my clients and community. Starting January 23, I am offering classes online and in-person.
