My Experience

Marcy McDonald is the owner of Marcy McDonald Enterprises LLC & its subsidiary, Sunset Doulas. She trained with INELDA (International End-of-Life Doula Association), Going with Grace, Maggie's Hospice, and Humana-Kindred Family Care. She has earned the Proficiency Badge from the National End of Life Doula Alliance (NEDA)

She's also a member of the Prescott Area Professional Coaches, and the National Home Funeral Alliance.

After the deaths of her brother and parents, Marcy felt called to help others prepare for the end of their lives and to help create a sacred passing for them. She closed down her business, Online Course Doctor, and opened Sunset Doulas to follow this new purpose.

She is the author of Build Happiness: Change Your Perspective, Change Your Life, a neuroscience-based guide to living fully in the present. She has long worked in education and coaching. Look for future workshops on death, dying, and mindfulness.
