She has taught introduction to astrology classes at libraries in St. Louis County and St. Charles County and has been asked to teach in yoga studios too. Book her to teach your group!
While practicing financial regulation law, Tess Clarkson trained as an end-of-life doula at the Open Center in New York and served the community as a hospice social and vigil volunteer. After relocating to Missouri, she also served as a hospice volunteer, and currently is the President of the Midwest End-Of-Life Doula Collective. She received her end-of-life doula and elder care doula certificates through Doulagivers, and she earned her proficiency badge through the National End-of-Life Doula Alliance. The deaths of both of Tess’ elderly parents also greatly influenced her perspective on end-of-life planning. Tess is passionate about sharing what she’s learned to help others prepare for their final finales and to give the gift of planning. Her tips have been published by AARP’s The Ethel. Tess also has been asked to present Your Best Goodbye, a death doula’s advice on preparing for the end of life, at the St. Louis County Library. Want to know more about Tess and Your Best Goodbye?
