Owner & Creator

Kat Primeau is a musical and live performance artist as well as a Certified Grief Educator, End-of-Life Specialist, and End-of Life-Planner. She always loved volunteering in nursing homes as a kid with her Grandma Jackie, and when she first moved to LA, taught seated exercise and held tea parties at elder care facilities.

Kat came to know long-distance caregiving and anticipatory grief when her dad was diagnosed with early onset dementia in 2015. After sitting bedside at his death in 2017 and a series of impactful Covid-19 pandemic losses, she decided to honor her ancestors by entering into End-of-Life service. Her mission is to spark conversation and creativity around grief, death, and dying as the “Good Grief Doula."

She has completed Grief Educator training with David Kessler, Death Doula training with Alua Arthur and Going With Grace, and acquired NEDA (National End-of-life Doula Alliance) proficiency. She is also a credentialed Minister and a volunteer with Skirball Hospice, The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration, and “A Dose of Funny,” the Laughter for a Change program at Children’s Hospital LA.

She can often be found singing, organizing people and their belongings, co-writing, choreographing, and costuming musicals with the musical comedy collective, Robot Teammate, and performing live music with her life partner and their oversized dream pop band, Sumeau.
