Dora has worked over ten years in the death care industry. Her gentle spirit and compassionate heart has earned her high respect and admiration from the hundreds of families she has assisted in making final arrangements. Her passion and commitment to the cause of helping others during the time of grief inspired her to pursue grief coaching. She saw that families needed so much more after the funeral and burial services were over. She is trained and certified as a life coach and grief coach, and is founder and partner of The ANIYA Group Life Coaching Center.
