Welcome! I am a writer, music-thanatologist, and the author of Music at the End of Life: Easing the Pain and Preparing the Passage (Praeger).

I’ve written about music-thanatology in the New York Times: Providing the Soundtrack for Life’s Last Moments (On Work, August 2015) and Songs of Transition (The End series, December, 2015).  

My writing has also in The Washington Post, Sojourners, The Christian Century, The Progressive Magazine, and other publications. I am currently working on a memoir.

After college I moved to Montana, built my harp from a kit and became a certified music-thanatologist. I have worked with the palliative care service at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center for ten years. From 2006-2012 I served as the president of the Music-Thanatology Association International.

Thanks for being here, and I’d love to hear from you!
