Bio

My husband, Kris, and I are co- authors of "It's OK to Die," a compelling look at end-of-life care choices in America. We advocate for advanced planning and hospice, using shocking stories to illustrate our points. The end of life can become a time of peace, healing and closure with wise choices.

Specialties
