About Modern Deathcare:

Hi! I'm Karry.

I’m a full-time death doula and founder of Modern Deathcare. I work with clients internationally, and again and again I see how, when people have the right support, death, dying and bereavement can be a very healing and deeply meaningful experience.

My own challenging experiences with death brought me to this work. After several loved ones died in a short period of time, I was struggling. I felt empty and stuck. What made it worse was being told that I’d been grieving for too long.

I knew that wasn’t true though. I knew there were gifts in my grief if I had the right support. I set out to find another way to experience death and grief. I read everything I could get my hands on, talked to others in the field and started taking trainings in death-work. The more I discovered, the more committed I became to sharing these possibilities with others so they could look back knowing they did everything they could without regret.

It was through my own struggles that I found my calling


This is why I'm so passionate about teaching people how to care for people at end-of-life. I’m committed to sharing this wisdom and transforming the end of life experiences from a traumatic event into a connection-filled, meaningful rite of passage.

What brings you to Death Cafe?

To shift the cultural narrative around death, dying and bereavement by hosting free Death Cafes. To build community, deepen our compassion and share our stories to move us through our experiences.

What would you like your legacy to be?

To have shifted the way our culture experiences death, dying and bereavement so that more families are experiencing ease, connection and grace at the end-of-life.

Thoughts for sharing:

Life your life fearlessly so that when you arrive at your deathbed, you look around you without having unopened gifts you wonder what could have been.
