Meet Carol-Ann

End of Life Doula & Educator

It is in this practice I feel I can offer my strongest attributes: compassion, generous-listening skills, and a deep desire to be of service to the community.

During the latter stages of my career as a teacher in the Faculty of Medicine at UBC, I became drawn to the work done by my clinical colleagues in Palliative Care. I knew I wanted to have a non-clinical role in this area, so I completed my End of Life Doula training, became a Sunshine Coast Hospice Volunteer and have since become a Willow End of Life Educator™.

I live full time on the Sunshine Coast in BC, welcoming clients for in person meetings from Langdale to Garden Bay. These meet ups could be at your home or we could go for a walk or a bench-chat out in nature. I am also available for online sessions for clients from Vancouver and further up the coast.
