But now, says the Once-ler, now that you’re here, the word of the Lorax seems perfectly clear. UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.
~ Dr. Seuss, The Lorax

KrissK_Logo_SMI am here to co-create a world where death is revered as a teacher and grief is the master evoking similar emotional reactions in the human and non-human animal.

By uncovering the lessons nature teaches us about death and grief, I am here to counsel, empower, and support those who consciously yearn to reconnect and protect their wild cousins and their habitats.

Death and grief do not only apply to humans. They teach us lessons to love and appreciate what we have before it’s gone.

Dr. Kriss Kevorkian is on a mission to help us learn these lessons through her ground-breaking research on environmental grief and ecological grief. As the human population increases, encroaching on the habitats of more and more animal species, we must do all we can to live with non-human animals rather than against them. Animals are not property or our entertainment. They are interconnected to us all, and we have to learn that now before we lose more species.

She is a Thanatologist, educator, writer, international speaker on issues of end-of-life care, environmental grief and ecological grief.

Dr. Kevorkian is a contributing, part time faculty member at The Barbara Solomon School of Social Work & Human Services MSW Program at Walden University, and has a private practice supporting clients, and their families, through the end of life and their grief.

Dr. Kriss Kevorkian supports her community of Gig Harbor, WA., by facilitating a Death Cafe at the Gig Harbor Library monthly, and she is on the Steering Committee of the Meaningful Movies of Gig Harbor.

Recently, Dr. Kevorkian became a Climate Reality Leader having undergone the training in Seattle with chairman and founder, former US Vice President Al Gore.

The Climate Reality Leadership Corps is a global network of activists committed to spreading awareness of the climate crisis and working for solutions to the greatest challenge of our time.
