As a young Intensive Care nurse, my journey began with creating a support group for families of critically ill individuals. My personal and professional experiences in navigating life’s transitional moments has led me to further understand grief and loss on a more intimate level. It has been very liberating and joyous as I continually learn to celebrate individual moments as opportunities to grow in relationship with God. My commitment is to understand you and to meet you where you are at in your journey.
