Peer Support Meeting — “Helping people is what we do”

Here’s what CANA says about this meeting coming up tomorrow:

“The funeral profession is not for the faint of heart. You need the compassion to serve grieving families, the self-confidence and leadership skills to do the job, and the ability to find balance between work and your personal life. On September 20th, Funeral Professional Peer Support (FPPS) and the Cremation Association of North America (CANA) get to the heart of what makes funeral professionals tick.”

“Bill Sampson, Dodge Chemical Company Canada, and Lisa Smith, FPPS Wellness Director, facilitate the September meeting. Together, they’ll share what drew them to this profession and why they’ve kept at it for over a decade. “When people ask why you chose a career in funeral service, the typical answer is, ‘Because I want to help people, or I like helping people’” remarked Lisa. “Helping people is what we do.”
