Karyn’s experience caring for her husband through a terminal diagnosis to end of life and caring for others through their journey living well has prepared her to be an end of life Doula.
Having worked in homeless shelters and volunteering overseas in hospitals caring for others has given Karyn experience working with people from all walks of life.
Lived experience, compassion and a down to earth approach with life is a little of what Karyn offers.
