Jessica Clontz is an Assistant Teaching Professor of Human Development and Family Studies at Penn State University, DuBois campus, where she teaches courses on the helping professions, gerontology, addictions counseling, and grief and loss. Jess is a trained end of life doula through the International End of Life Doula Association and works to promote conversations surrounding death and dying in her local community. When she's not teaching, you can find her hiking with her family in the Pennsylvania Wilds, reading a good book, tending to her plants, or traveling to new places. She lives in beautiful Pennsylvania with her husband and German Shepherd.
In this episode we talk about teaching a course on grief and loss, student reactions to the course, her relationship with her grandmother, her death during the pandemic and maintaining a bond, the grief dream of her grandmother, and the power of sharing dreams with others.
