Here is another example of an inspiring woman in the death care industry. Melissa Unfred, aka The Modern Mortician @mod_mortician , is an alternative death care specialist. Although she holds all the licensure required to work in a traditional funeral establishment, she focuses more on educating families about their options for having green funerals at home. .
She also has a licensed grief therapy dog named Kermit who brings comfort to not just families but also to funeral professionals and health care workers etc.
.
Melissa is a member of the National Home Funeral Alliance, the Funeral Consumers Alliance, and shares a membership with Kermit at The Dog Alliance.
.
I'm grateful for her courage to go against the grain, pursue her passions, and always be vocal about what she believes in.
.
Who inspires you in a death-related field?

Edited to add: Watch her story to follow her to cemteries and as she goes on removals. She's hilarious, yet respectful, and always makes me laugh.- A

Book 11/12! Getting closerπŸ˜ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ½πŸ€“πŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“š I wanted to read something out of the ordinary, so I picked this glorious gem. not as morbid as it seems. if you’re interested in mortuary science or the author, check out her Youtube channel, β€œAsk A Mortician”! She vlogs about death in different cultures while highlighting issues that she advocates against/for. Really enjoyed this one😌✌🏽
Doughty brings a humour to her personal stories, that made me laugh out loud. There were also points in the book that surprised, brought tears to my eyes, and filled me with even more curiousity. Death invokes a mixture of emotions within us, and we don’t have to hide or feel ashamed for any of them. I don’t think the line of work is for me, yet I learned that we should educate ourselves when the time comes to prepare for a loved one or even for our own future passing. That it can be beautiful, peace finding, and individual to what we envision.

Forgot to share this, but here’s my antique Georgian skull fob Erik bought me for my birthday worn on my #signofthegrayhorse watch string. I love the combo of skulls and flowers, it’s a nice reminder that we’re beautiful inside and out... and also that beauty fades but death is eternal #mementomori #rememberdeath #deathpositive #futurecorpse #orderofthegooddeath #georgian #18thcentury #antique #antiquejewelry

"Insist on going to the cremation, insist on going to the burial. Insist on being involved, even if it is just brushing your mother’s hair as she lies in her casket. Insist on applying her favorite shade of lipstick, the one she wouldn’t dream of going to the grave without. Insist on cutting a small lock of her hair to place in a locket or a ring. Do not be afraid. These are human acts, acts of bravery and love in the face of death and loss." - #CaitlinDoughty, From Here to Eternity β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’

"Accepting death doesn't mean you won't be devastated when someone you love dies. It means you will be able to focus on your grief, unburdened by bigger existential questions like, "Why do people die?" and "Why is this happening to me?" Death isn't happening to you. Death is happening to us all." β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’
Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Caitlin Doughty (@thegooddeath ), author and founder of The Order of the Good Death. She spoke about death rituals from around the world, and how we can empower families and communities to care for their dead.
