Meet the Team


Founder, Executive Coach

Sarah Hines

Sarah's journey into grief work began with the profound and personal experience of supporting a dear friend who was rejected by his family and faced death alone. This heartbreak propelled her into activism and led to her training in Home Hospice, where she volunteered for five years. She later trained in Children's Home Hospice, deepening her understanding of death's complexity and the beauty that can emerge even in the darkest times. Her 25-year career in Death and Grief care, further enriched by her studies at the Orphan Wisdom School, has taught her that grief is our greatest teacher. Today, she supports individuals and groups, advocates for improved bereavement policies, and shares the valuable lessons she has learned through speaking engagements.
