About

Hi, my name is Katie Dziedzic, and I’ve spent over 20 years in the medical field practicing in traditional roles. I’ve been an EMT, an emergency department nurse, as well as a nurse practitioner in the cardiac ICU and advanced heart failure.  Most recently, I worked in the hospital as a nurse practitioner providing palliative and hospice care.  Throughout my experiences I witnessed a significant need for improved guidance and support at the end of life and for those living with a terminal illness. 

Many people and their families go through a death experience unprepared. They are frightened, overwhelmed, and fraught with tension and anxiety. It doesn’t have to be this way. I believe death, just like birth, is a sacred and normal transition. I want to help people find and meet their spiritual, emotional, mental and physical needs upon preparing for their own death, or for the death of a friend or family member.  

 

That’s why I’ve become an end-of-life (EOL) coach/doula. I help patients and their families explore and decide upon the preparatory goals that best meet their needs. From there, I provide a full suite of services designed to reduce fear and anxiety, and increase acceptance and a sense of closure. As an EOL doula, I would like to help remove fear from the dying process. Death doesn’t have to be this hard - let me show you another path.
