Hi there!

I’m Lauren. Keeper of death stories, purveyor of good dying, believer in good living & fellow mortal.


Talk Dying to Me is my attempt to wake you up to your own mortality.

I was inspired to pursue a career in palliative medicine following years of thinking about death after my mom died.

I’ve experienced first hand the benefits of having a healthy relationship with death and dying. I’ve also experienced the challenges of delivering quality end-of-life care in a society crippled with death anxiety.

I believe that acknowledging death has the power to change your life.

This is a space for fellow mortals to contemplate the hard stuff and weigh in on life’s greatest mystery. Prepare to feel a little uncomfortable and a lot fulfilled.
