I would like to welcome all of you to my first ever podcast episode of The Glam Reaper. I am your host Jennifer, delighted to impart all my knowledge and experiences through my podcast episodes and together with my special guests about different aspects of life, love, loss, and funerals.
In today’s episode, we are very fortunate to have a very talented woman as our guest. A life coach, the owner and lead publicist of Whitegate PR, and also known as “The Pet Lady”, no other than Dana Humphrey.
Dana and I had a wonderful conversation about different aspects of life and our life experiences. We started out with how Dana became a death doula and what inspired her to be one. During this conversation, she deepens the meaning of what it is to be a death doula and some aspects that you have to be equipped as a death doula. She added that she enrolled in a death doula program that made her certified as a death doula. As our conversation progressed, we talked about how death should be accepted as part of our journey in life. Accepting death does not mean we want to speed it up, rather we learn more to appreciate what we have in life and be able to live our lives to the fullest.
