"Dignity Through Every Chapter."

Paula Mackenzie

Outreach Coordinator

Through death, I’ve learned to live with intention…to laugh, love and live with all that I am…There’s simply no other way for me.

- Paula

Paula Jane Mackenzie, Outreach Coordinator, joined Empowered Endings in January of 2023. She has long been passionate about End of Life Care, having worked at the acclaimed San Diego Hospice & Palliative Care for 15 years.

At San Diego Hospice, Paula was part of the team that developed the first International Fellowship program for Hospice & Palliative Medicine. She supported key programs that became the foundation for future end of life training programs around the world. As Executive Assistant to two of the country’s most prominent and progressive Hospice & Palliative Care physicians, Paula learned the importance of whole-patient care and the deep impact each person on the team can make.

Paula believes thought and passion put into even the smallest details can positively change the outcome. Having experienced a close personal loss in 2018, Paula now chooses to live each day with great intention. She strives to spend every day helping, serving, living, and loving.

Bob and Elizabeth are just very gentle souls. There was no pressure and shared with my wife Rachel and I the many options you have to consider. It felt just like someone putting their arms around you.

[Dr. Bill Parker]

For us as a family, Bob and Elizabeth gave us the tranquility and support that we needed at that moment. It made a total difference in the way my Dad passed away. It allowed me to be the daughter and not a nurse.
