I am a 2009 graduate of the Music-Thanatology Training Program at Lane Community College, Portland, Oregon. My work as a full-time music-thanatologist is with Applegate HomeCare & Hospice and in August of 2012 I began offering music-thanatology services one day a week at a small but progressive hospital, Ogden Regional Medical Center.

The practice of Music-Thanatology at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Eugene began in 1997. We call the service to patient and families "Strings of Compassion." The practice has grown over the years; now providing vigils for two hospital sites and a very large hospice service in homes and nursing homes. There are now three music-thanatologists at Sacred Heart and the practice has become fully integrated into the delivery of care. It is well utilized and appreciated.
