I am passionate about:
Transforming what is ugly into something sublime, creating beauty out of nothing, instilling wonder in children, laughing until it hurts, protecting children from mindless media and mostly my family.
A little known fact about me is:
I feed crows. They come to my window when they see my car in the driveway. I have two grandchildren...they are not crows!!

In The Parlor: The Final Goodbye
Ive been caring for the dead in peoples homes for 30+ years. Im also a filmmaker & production designer, two very different careers. It works well for me as Im able to be creative, work hard and then serve families during deeply painful times. Giving lectures, workshops, trainings on how to care for our loved ones after they pass has allowed me to travel and meet extraordinary individuals working in this field. "In The Parlor" was a way to combine both my passions while giving people a glimpse into what a 3 day home vigil might be like. I have 3 remarkable kids and an excellent husband!
