About Me

My name is Kammy Jagoe and I’ve been a registered nurse for over 30 years specializing in both oncology and hospice care. My experience working in these areas has filled my spirit and given me an appreciation of life even in the small moments.

Just as there is grief and sadness at death, I have also witnessed moments of beauty in those final moments of life. It is an honor for me to be with patients and families during these most vulnerable times. Death is a natural part of life and I have observed that it does not have to be a frightening, morbid experience; rather, peace, comfort, and beauty can be found with the right environment, with the right preparation and education.

Not only do I have nursing experience, but I’m a certified End of Life Doula, a Certified Companion Doula, and a Certified Advanced Life Planning Doula. I am a member of the National End of Life Doula Alliance (NEDA) and earned the NEDA badge through an exam that certifies proficiency in the NEDA core competencies.

I believe strongly that all individuals deserve peace and dignity at life’s end, with their wishes being honored and respected. Reach out to discover how I can assist you and your family throughout this path.
