    Becoming the Peacemaker: A Mediator’s Strategies for Conflict Resolution in Clinical Settings

    Becoming the Peacemaker: A Mediator’s Strategies for Conflict Resolution in Clinical Settings

    For 20 years, I have been advocating for the vulnerable and dying.  For ten years, I trained and mediated elder disputes at the LA County Department of Consumer Affairs.  I helped elders with family issues, including financial abuse and end-of-life care.   In 2012, I earned an Executive Juris Doctor (EJD) from Concord Law School, a division of Purdue Global, majoring in Health Law.  My internship was in Pediatric Hospice, where I spent a year attending Interdisciplinary Team Meetings and writing about my experiences.

    For many years, I have been a hospice volunteer sitting at the bedside of many dying patients.  In addition to supporting their families, I help tie up their final loose ends so they can pass in peace.  I have been a Thanatologist since 2015. I am certified as an expert in caring for the dying and bereaved and teaching others about the dying process.  I have clinical bioethics training and sat on two hospital bioethics committees.

    In 2020, I became a Board-Certified Patient Advocate (BCPA) and started Ending Well Patient Advocacy, LLC.  I weaved my past experiences into a business that specializes in giving people a voice in planning the last chapter of their life.  I earned Facilitator certificates through Respecting Choices® and now offer community classes and presentations on advance care planning and surrogacy.

    In January 2021, I became the Surrogate Consultant for the Final Exit Network (FEN).  My role is to help FEN members and their partners who act as surrogates or healthcare proxies enforce and honor the patient’s Advance Directives.

    Unlock Your Wealth Through Better Health

    Unlock Your Wealth Through Better Health

    Laurel Otey is the owner of Layered Living, a holistic wellness practice. She serves families and businesses worldwide as a certified Health Coach, international Wellness Educator, Celiac Disease Advocate, and Corporate Speaker. Laurel provides Health Coaching Programs with a focus on autoimmune disease, general Wellness Classes, and comprehensive Prenatal and Parenting Education for parents. All services are available online and by video-call.

    Laurel transforms lives through the way we eat and live. Her clients eliminate unpleasant health symptoms and reduce their dependency on medications, resulting in decreased healthcare expenses. By alleviating unnecessary suffering, they gain a higher quality of life.

    She was first inspired to begin her health coaching practice when faced with her child’s health problems. At one year old, Laurel’s oldest daughter began experiencing ongoing health problems – bloating and diarrhea, skin rashes, frequent illness, mood changes, and dark circles under her eyes. At the time, Laurel’s concerns were dismissed as those of a worried first-time mother.

    Out of necessity and frustration, Laurel began researching in an effort to become a more informed and effective health advocate for her child. In the end, it was identified that her daughter did, in fact, have celiac disease and needed to be on a 100%, lifelong, gluten free diet (#nocrumbsplease).

    This experience showed her that there is still a huge gap in knowledge and support around celiac disease and related conditions in our medical community. Laurel returned to school and graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She now serves as a necessary bridge between patients and doctors.

    In between coaching and classes, Laurel enjoys spending time with her three kind, intelligent, food-loving daughters and creating new, delicious, gluten free recipes with her husband. The wellness challenges they have faced and overcome together continue to inform and shape Laurel as both a mother and wellness professional.

    Kyrié (Kee-re-ay) is a corporate coach and ageism activist.  She loves being with others in their story, particularly at points of transition in career or life phase. She brings joy and enthusiasm to her coaching, focusing on gentle, sustainable growth as opposed to a “soul boot-camp.”
