VISION STATEMENT

With my own upbringing and personal losses, I have learned to embrace resiliency, hope, resourcefulness and adaptability.  With my training, experience and understanding, I hope to encourage others while being sensitive and mindful of their life circumstances, losses and successes.  For people at the end of their lives or the bereaved, my wish is to facilitate mourning and memories.
