Hi! I'm Nathan...
As the son of a funeral director, I visited many cemeteries and grew up living above a funeral home. Because of my appreciation for the special way my family supported the people in our community I attended and graduated Northampton College, Bethlehem, PA with a degree in mortuary science. I spent then next 17 years working as a funeral director and funeral home manager until shifting my focus on cemetery operations in 2012.
I am a past ICCFA Best Practices Kip Award winner, ICCFA University Scholarship recipient, a former Maryland Cemetery Oversight Advisory Counsel appointee, and currently serve on the MCCA board of directors and ICCFA Membership Committee.
It is because of my passion for the work death care professionals do that I started this website. It is my hope that through sharing ideas, information and supporting others that I can help build a stronger profession.
So...consider contributing to my blog....share your successes with others, and help strengthen our community.
