It was during my own medical treatment when I began to think about if I was prepared for my end-of-life and if my “affairs” were in order. After obtaining my MBA, I trained to be an End-of-Life Doula (Death Doula) through INELDA (International End of Life Doula Association) and Doulagivers to create But Before I Go, Creating Your Best Exit Strategy (BBIG). I’ve always wanted to help people obtain their best life through health education and have created national campaigns that promoted all types of health strategies.
But Before I Go, Creating Your Best Exit Strategy is for anyone looking to take control of their future end, as much as they possibly can. What I see is an aging population, a “Silver Tsunami” – which is a phrase often used when looking at aging baby boomers – and I see a generation of people who are used to taking control of their lives and their destinies. This is a generation that fought for Civil Rights, Women’s Rights, and equality across the spectrum.
Contrary to social media and retail marketers, this generation still has a voice, still has desires, and still matters in society. They are living longer and healthier. So why not have that same joie de vivre when thinking about the end-of-life? But Before I Go, Creating Your Best Exit Strategy offers a safe, confidential space to begin the hard conversations and planning.
You don’t have to be terminally ill to consult with me. BBIG can be the first step you take in creating your best exit strategy. However, if you have a chronic or terminal diagnosis, my person-centered strategy is to help you communicate your wishes and create that sacred space for a peaceful passing.
Everyone deserves a good death and to die with dignity. But Before I Go, Creating Your Best Exit Strategy is a great place to start.
