About Catherine

Experience: 10 yrs

COVID-19 vaccinated

I hold a history and political science degree from USF. More recently, I graduated from The University of Vermont's End-of-Life Doula Program. This means I specialize in common illnesses and symptoms, non-medical pain management, and emotional and spiritual support. I am a NEDA-Proficient member of the National End-of-Life Doula Alliance. Additionally, I have logged over 100 volunteer hours with Seasons and LifePath Hospice. I also completed the LGBTQ+ Inclusive Training at Metro Inclusive Health. I champion safe, non-judgmental support and resources for the entire population as a trained DEI advocate. I also work as a doula/educator at a Diaspora Psychedelic Society and End of Life Psychedelic Care. For the rest of the year, I am a private transitional doula working in Chicago and the world at large. In my spare time, I enjoy yoga, meditation, running, and cycling. I am fully vaccinated, background-checked, and fingerprinted.
