Stanley Bronstein Interviews Dr. Kristine Kevorkian


Dr. Kevorkian spent the first 20 years of her life studying whales, in school and out. Her dream was to be a whale biologist when she grew up. But life had different plans. Rather than completing her degree in marine biology, Kristine ended up in the field of social work. Her professor and mentor told her that she was going to complete her undergraduate senior internship at hospice to which she replied, “what’s hospice?” When she met her first hospice patient, she knew she had found her life’s work.

After graduate school, she returned to hospice where Dr. Kevorkian provided her patients, young and old, with compassion, respect and dignity. Always eager to learn more, she pursued a doctorate in thanatology, the study/science of death and dying. Her intention was to teach medical and mental health professionals how to work with the dying; particularly how to communicate with the dying, family members and the bereaved. Dr. Kristine Kevorkian currently hosts/facilitates a Death Café in her community, and has a private practice as a Grief Navigator, helping clients sail through the sometimes stormy seas of grief.
