Meet Wind & Wing’s newest team member!
It’s my absolute pleasure to introduce my End-of-Life Doula Assistant, Kira Hyde. Since Kira first discovered Caitlin Doughty’s book Smoke Gets in Your Eyes and Other Lessons from the Crematory back in 2016, her life has never been the same. From that time, she’s been a death positive advocate and hopes to help people accept death as a natural part of life instead of treating it like a taboo subject.
In addition to the death positive movement, Kira’s other major passion is the right to accessible information. This led her to pursue a Master’s of Library and Information Science from Dominican University in Illinois. She’s almost completed her studies but is also considering continuing on to an end–of-life doula training program. Life and people are stories to her and she has a thirst for hearing and learning more. That interest and curiosity is what will make her an asset either in a library setting or companioning someone who is looking for care and connection at the end of their lives.
Kira is excited to join this team as an assistant helping with social media, networking and organizing events. Look for more from her! She’s only just begun and she’s already made such a huge difference in my life.
