September 10, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EDTFree
Selected to speak at TEDxAirlie in 2016, Kimberly’s Ted Talk epitomized her passion for educating individuals about Advance Care Planning and the issues that may occur for individuals and family members if they do not prepare for end of life. During her 17-year career in hospice care, her stories have inspired and empowered many to take action by documenting personal plans prior to the occurrence of a life-ending health crisis.
Kimberly’s enthusiasm and passion to positively educate those on how to plan for end of life are evident as she shares her stories through speaking engagements, her writings, videos, and film. As of 2017, Kimberly is now investing 100-percent of her time to bring innovation to the death and dying industry by applying the concept of design thinking.
With a book in development for release in the upcoming months and the creation of her podcast streams for 2017, Kimberly is dedicated to providing continuing education about end of life choices with the help of leading experts in the healthcare industry and photographers, painters, authors and everyday people sharing their personal experience about love, loss, preparation and moving through grief.
“Death by Design” is an innovative, constructive and uplifting invitation to move beyond the legal paperwork and vital conversations necessary for end of life. “Death by Design” will empower you to design your death to reflect your values, your likes and even your personality. Our death, if designed, can be a beautiful experience and not just a final destination.
