Veronica J. Kovach-Dodd, MS - Thanatologist
I am a proud graduate of Liberty University (Magna Cum Laude), and hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology, with a specialization in Life Coaching, and a minor in Christian Counseling. I've earned my Master of Science degree in Thanatology from Marian University.
I am a Certified Christian Life Coach (CCLC), Certified Professional Life Coach (CPLC), Minister of Consolation, expert in bereavement support, hospice volunteer, published author and freelance writer.
Within my personal life, I have experienced loss in many ways; my grandparents, parents, family members, colleagues, friends, and pets, and most recently my uncle to cancer in 2005. Having experienced all these different types of losses, especially as an only child, I am very well versed in the grief field. These past experiences are what gave me an interest in this area. I know firsthand how vital proper care is, and what a blessing and asset it can be to patients and families as they experience anticipatory grief, followed by a families' bereavement after their loved one passes.
