My name is Hayley Ingram. Im currently an end of life companion at Kindred Hospice. I’ve been trained through INELDA, Quality of Life Care services, A Sacred Passing, and the No One Dies Alone program for King County. I attended the workshop for Love and Death at Upaya Zen Institute with Joan Halifax. I also begin additional education in 2020 with The Conscious Dying Institute as well as Social Work through Seattle Central College. I am committed in making sure that every person is heard and spoken for. It is my duty to support you in mind, body, and spirit.
I am from a small, country town located in Currituck, North Carolina. I uprooted myself and came to Seattle in 2018 to satisfy my curiosity with living on the West Coast.
It started at the young age of 4 when my grandmother was folding clothes one night. I asked her why I was alive and why we had to die. She’s long since passed and I don’t recall what she replied, but I’ve dedicated spending my life in shaping the answer. I’ve always had a strange relationship with death that has weaved between bouts of fear and curiosity. I feel very deeply called to do this work and it is my goal to be an emotional medium for those who need it. My passion is empathy and doing my part in helping humanity.
I am a dog mom, poet, lover of nature, and absolutely in awe of the mystery and divine.
