Charon Collier is the founder of The Good Death Experience, Death Doula, an End-of-Life Consultant, and a Death Educator. She received her Death Doula Professional Certification from the University of Vermont. Charon is also a Licensed Massage Therapist and received her education at the National Holistic Institute in Sacramento California. In addition, she attended Everflowing, in San Francisco, California. There, she received training from Irene Smith, a pioneer in the field of Touch Massage in Hospice.

Charon developed a passion for end-of-life care while volunteering with the University of California Davis Hospice in Sacramento, California. For more than a decade, she provided companionship, therapeutic massage to patients, and grief support to families. She has been driven by her experience to advocate the importance of everyone striving for a good death experience. 

The transition from hospice volunteer work to death doula work was a natural one for Charon. She recognized that incorporating the core fundamentals of being a doula has always been an inherent part of who she is. She incorporates them into all aspects of her everyday existence. She has always been a death doula at heart.

As a natural leader, Charon is drawn toward making a significant difference in the lives of others. She strives to be present, compassionate, open-minded, and understanding of those on her path. She credits her journey from volunteer to death doula with reconnecting her with her true self and life path.

The Good Death Experience

“Journey from Hospice Volunteer to Death Doula”

“Death Doula work was an intuitive decision for me after volunteering for hospice for nearly a decade. Once I truly understood the concept of “Doula,” I realized that it is and has always been an inherent part of who I am, which I incorporate into all aspects of my existence daily without realizing it. I am naturally drawn to serving others in a way that makes a significant difference in their lives—aiming to be present, open-minded, understanding, and compassionate to alleviate distress for those along my journey. My journey from hospice volunteer to death doula was essential in helping me reconnect with my true self and life path. I have always been a doula at heart.”
