Alua Arthur, JD, is a death doula, attorney, and the founder of Going with Grace, an end-of-life planning and support organization that exists to support people as they answer the question, “What must I do to be at peace with myself so that I may live presently and die gracefully?” From private end-of- life consultations to online coursework to training death doulas, she is tirelessly committed to bringing awareness to death and dying and passionately believes considering death can inspire the way we live. Ms. Arthur currently sits on the Board of Directors of the National End-of-Life Doula Alliance (NEDA) and the End-of-Life Doula Council of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO). A jewelry addict, Arthur is also a life lover, donut fanatic, and developing nation enthusiast. She is inspired by LIFE, the little joys we can find even in dark times, the freedom of authenticity, and the power in the word YES.
