Blog / Julie Keon

  1. Julie’s professional career began in social service work which eventually led to a career as a birth and postpartum doula. Julie’s path changed and evolved after becoming a mother herself to Meredith, in December 2003. Due to the demands of caregiving, Julie hung up her doula hat and welcomed a new opportunity in 2012 when she became a licensed marriage officiant for the province of Ontario. Her services were expanded when she graduated as a Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant® in early 2013 from the Celebrant Foundation & Institute with a focus on end-of-life and funeral celebrations. Julie is active in the death midwifery movement and now offers care to those at the end of life. An avid writer, Julie began work on her first book, an extension of her essay, What I Would Tell You, in 2011. Her book was published and released to the world in May 2015 and has been very well received by not only parents and the professionals who work with families like hers but also by anyone who has found themselves in a caregiving role. In 2017, Julie will launch the second edition of What I Would Tell You which will be released in the summer.
