I have over ten years of experience teaching at both the high school and college level. I host educational events that help people learn more about the dying process. I also teach ways to prepare for death that create comfort and lessen anxiety. All over Chicago, my workshops normalize discussions around death and dying so we can stop being afraid.
I host workshops and presentations, speak on panels, and teach continuing education classes. I’m available for your community forum, religious or secular service, and organizational meeting. This can be in-person, remotely, or a hybrid of both.
