I had no idea what I wanted to do for a living, but I was certain of one thing… I would NEVER wear a black suit to work. Needless to say, my daily attire was the less shocking parts of my career choice.
After my father passed away and I planned a unique funeral for him, I became completely fixated on the industry. Having basically no experience, I started working as a receptionist at the same funeral home where we had dad’s service, Frank E. Campbell. Having an understanding of the clients and what they were going through, I was able to learn quickly and rose to Director of Family Services. For years, I was privileged to learn from some of the best in the field, and honored to work with inspiring families.
I left Campbells to get my MBA in London, then my degree in Thanatology (Death, Dying and Bereavement) and finally my Funeral Director’s License. I have been constantly devouring all the knowledge that I can and I now want to share it. I hope to open up the conversation and remove the taboo of death. Please feel free to write in with any topics that might be of particular interest to you.
