Patty Burgess is the founder of Teaching Transitions, Doing Death Differently, The Death Chicks, and the co-founder of both Your Voice Directives and LifePath Learners.
Patty has been at the forefront of the death awareness movement for over 20 years, beginning when she struggled to support a dear friend who was dying. Since that time, she has been a hospice volunteer, volunteer trainer, community educator, and creator of a well-known hospice volunteer training platform.
A strong proponent of the end-of-life doula movement, Patty was one of the original seven founders of NEDA, (the National End-of-Life Alliance), and was selected as one of the charter members of the NHPCO End-of-Life Doula Council.
Her latest venture is LifePath Learners, co-founded with Sheila Schultz, a fellow EOL doula and advance care planning educator. The company serves as a container for their combined interests, providing training services and enrichment products for those wishing to help others prepare, cope, and adapt to challenging times later in life.
LifePath Learners contributes educational and inspirational offerings to the aging, death, and dying industry. We are all learners on this path of life.
