KATIE WHITE SWANSON

Musician, Death Doula, Artist for Community Care

I'm a classical violist with a doctorate in performance, an artist in community care settings, a nonprofit admin, and death doula. I work particularly with the arts as a empowering tool for grief and memorial, queer and artistic legacy, and death choices such as Medical Aid in Dying and Voluntarily Stopping Eating and Drinking. Trained by Going with Grace in 2021, I now volunteer with End of Life Choices Oregon, and work as a doula virtually and in-person in Portland, Oregon.
