Carrie has been immersed in the disability community both personally and professionally since childhood. It has been her privilege, over the past thirty years, to support and empower people of all ages, across the disability spectrum and in various roles within the developmental sector.
Carrie’s interest in end of life and disability began once she came to learn there was no disability representation within her local deathcare community. Carrie soon after ,completed and received her certificate in the Fundamentals of Hospice and Palliative Care from Acclaim Health. She went on to complete and receive her certificate from Beyond Yonder Virtual School for Community Deathcare. She also completed the course Learning how to Live by Listening to the Dying.

Carrie advocates for disability competent end of life care and grief support. She feels strongly about honouring the bereavement of direct support workers, families, friends and our disability communities after losing a loved one with a disability . Carrie created a Facebook group To Walk a Mile in My Shoes that honours loss and disability.
