Maggie Purnell. BSN, RN, Certified Sacred Passage Doula

Maggie has 45 years of combined RN experience with 13 years being a Hospice RN Specialist. She is a Certified Sacred Passage Doula for the dying and also a Certified Conscious Aging Facilitator. She has extensive experience with After Death care and Grief Counseling. With her background as a Hospice RN Specialist, she believes most people prefer to die at home surrounded by family members, close friends and caregivers. She’s seen patients at the end of their lives deprived of human touch, isolated in fear, waiting to die, without an understanding of this sacred transition between life and death.

Maggie believes it is possible to have a peaceful, beautiful life and death with healing and coaching for her patients, their families and their caregivers with her expert guidance.

Maggie can be reached at 828-280-3801 or fomal39@yahoo.com
