Louanne Caspar is the founder and owner of Executrixie, which is based in North Carolina. She is a graduate of the Spring 2023 cohort of the PALS Training Program™, and she was kind enough to answer a few questions for us.
What made you realize you wanted to be an after loss professional?
I founded Executrixie to ease the burden for executors after the death of a loved one by simplifying the numerous tasks associated with estate administration and to reinforce the necessary support systems required to get the job done. As an After Loss Professional with my work and resources, I have allowed my clients to spend more time with their families, to minimize time away from work, and most importantly, to concentrate on their grief.
What kind of clients do you primarily work with?
I work with executors, who are handling the estate affairs of their late spouse, sibling or parents and would identify themselves as ‘Gen X’ or part of the sandwich generation. Either way, my clients are stretched in many different directions: work, children, and now the responsibility of estate administration.
Did anything change for your business after taking the PALS Training Program™?
When I learned about PALS, I found my people! The field of ‘After Loss Professionals’ is an emerging one and can be hard to define. PALS provides a community where I can share ideas, collaborate with others, and be part of something bigger than myself and my business.
What would you like to share with people considering becoming after loss professionals?
Pros: The need for After Loss Professionals will continue to grow over the next few decades as our population continues to grow older. Cons: The work is hard and can be emotionally draining at times. Anyone who wants to pursue this line of work must set strong boundaries.
