Life, Dying, Death & Grief...

Our Amazing Sponsors:

Featured Panel Discussions and Workshop Presentations

Navigating the Wild Ride of Grief for Young Adults Panel: Grief Support and Community Outreach for Young Adults Grieving in the Midst of COVID-19

Meet the People Behind the Expo

Michele Little, Producer

Michele Little is a Certified Death Midwife who helps us prepare for the end of this life at Beautiful Dying Company. Conducting workshops online, called Exit Papers 101, Michele holds our hands as she helps prepare the essential final paperwork for the dying and the death - the medical directives, the family tree, the final wishes, funeral arrangements, the memorials and bequests. Michele arrives at this calling the consummation of her history as a peace maker and life transformationalist.

Christy Marie Wilson, Co-Producer

Throughout nearly two decades of working in hospice, Kimberly experienced grief from the loss of young co-workers and many hospice patients as she captured their life stories in order to celebrate the lives they lived.
Kimberly left her job at hospice in December 2016, and created a podcast, Death by Design, that hosts industry leaders in medicine as well as artists, designers, caregivers and authors who are reclaiming their voice around their own experiences with death and dying.

We value diversity and inclusivity and welcome all voices to be heard.

We would not be where we are today without our fantastic group collaborators. These include our sponsors, members and friends in the death and dying community.

"We hope this expo will bring you clarity and a feeling of accomplishment to make good choices for yourself and your loved ones. Come to the Beautiful Dying Expo and find ways to navigate through this journey called life."
