About Us

Compassion You Can Count On

Unwinding Life was created to help foster healthy relationships to the dying experience through holistic care, education and planning.

It was founded by Ashley Tupper~ End of Life Planner, Death Doula & 

Registered Massage Therapist. 

Her wide range of experience offers an opportunity to serve those living with death by providing clear answers, connection to appropriate resources, direct approaches to communication, and compassionate, individualized care.

Ashley is passionate about empowering folks to learn as much as they can to help themselves- whether that's facing fears through pre-planning, working through a terminal diagnosis, compiling a care team to be able die at home or going through the tedious process of unwinding someone’s affairs after they have died.

After experiencing personal loss and supporting terminal clients as a Palliative Massage Therapist, she was trained by Alua Arthur of Going With Grace as an End Of Life Planner and Death Doula to offer a full spectrum of non-medical support services. 

Outside of this work, Ashley enjoys time in the garden with her husband and two children who they homeschool on a rural property in the Interlake area.  She loves a good dog, a good book, a good meal, a good laugh and a good bonfire.
