“Get comfortable with being uncomfortable.”

Cassie Barrett has been a death worker since 2010 and is the Director of Operations at Carolina Memorial Sanctuary, a conservation and green cemetery located in Western North Carolina. Since she was a kid, Cassie has felt a natural connection to death and a deep desire to serve others. Cassie considers her work a form of death activism, working to help society heal its relationship to death, using education, conversation, and art as a way to engage people. Her biggest mission is to encourage and empower people to prepare for their own death and live a fuller life. You can follow her work on Facebook at Death Activism.
