About Maggie, founder of Life at Sunset

Welcome! I think one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves and the world is self-awareness. Learning about yourself through others, discussion, inquiry, and imagination happens here. Do this through the lens of death and dying, and you might open yourself up to your life in a whole new way.

I come to you with a background in oncology nursing, hospice, palliative care, mindfulness research, yoga instruction, and curiosity in contemplative practices. A life-long learner, I am endlessly fascinated by this world and what it means to be human.

About Life at Sunset

Weekly Sunset Circle

Join a community of those who are curious. All ages, beliefs, experiences, fears, and questions are welcome. Find support, connect, share information, and gather together. Respect and compassion are the foundation of this circle. You are welcome here. See the Events page to check out previous and upcoming topics and to register for the next Circle.

End-of-Life Coaching

In a culture where death is mostly taboo, you are invited to dive deeply into topics that are relevant to your best life and your best death. We will work one-on-one to clarify your ideal vision together, and establish manageable goals to move towards that vision from your current reality. We will address the practical, physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual realms of life and death. See the Offerings page for options.


In a focused group setting, we will meet together for a dynamic combination of didactic sharing, discussion and inquiry. Workshops might focus on completing an advance directive, imagining and planning your own funeral, or brainstorming ideas for a Legacy Project. See Offerings for current available workshops.

Questions? Thoughts? I'd love to hear from you.
