ABOUT PAT SHEVELAND
Grief Coach & Certified Funeral Celebrant
As a child born to grieving parents, I have a unique perspective and first- hand understanding of the impact of long-term grief from the death of a child can have on a family. I have also been front and center with grief from the time I was a little girl. In fact, from the tender age of 5, I have had an innate understanding that death is a part of life and that grief is a critical part of the healing process.

My background with grief spans decades - from my work as a Registered Nurse in the hospital setting, to my long-time career as an executive in the worker's compensation insurance industry, and ultimately to my work as a life coach specializing in helping families find healing in their grief.
Bereaved families should be able to feel safe and supported in their grief. They should never have to feel abandoned and they should be allowed to grieve in the way that feels right for them.

My goal is to support the family by creating a personalized service to honor their loved one as they take the first steps on their path of grief.
