About Nada Frazier
The Sacred Servant's name was created by Founder and CEO, Nada Frazier, as a result of her referring to her work for years as "sacred service." Hope, love, education, and sacred service are cornerstones of The Sacred Servant.
"I didn't quite know what to call the end of life doula, so when people asked what I did, I simply started referring to myself as a 'sacred servant.' Being a sacred servant means I simply do my best each day to show up authentically - with integrity, compassion, and love."
Nada strives to bring hope to people facing challenging situations and transition. As someone who personally has experienced the grief of losing a child, having a loved one diagnosed with cancer, as well as provided long distance caregiving to family members with advanced illness, she understands the challenges that come with being a caregiver and family member of someone facing a life altering diagnosis.
Throughout her entire life, Nada has accompanied hundreds with advanced illness, as well as the dying, and their families and caregivers. She is a Certified End of Life Doula, Advanced Mentorship, through Quality of Life Care, as well as a Quality of Life Care Education Partner.*
For over 10 years, Nada served as a hospice volunteer and has been trained as a Hospice Ambassador and Spiritual Care volunteer, in Reiki as a Master Teacher, Gentle Touch, and PedsCare. She completed Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE1) serving as a Hospice Chaplain and has extensive experience supporting diverse people experiencing transition.
Nada provides consulting and educational training through individual consultations, group workshops, and mentoring other end of life doulas. Nada consults with hospice organizations, and trains hospice trainers and end of life doula volunteers.
Since 1991, Nada has been a presenter/inspirational speaker in various workshops, classes, seminars and events across the United States. She leads The Sacred Servant Community Conversations end of life workshops for community and church groups. Nada finds joy in reading, writing, meditation, nature photography, and honoring Lakota ways.
*There is no national or international board governing End of Life Doulas. End of Life Doulas are a self-regulated industry and each person is certified by the organization that conducts their training.
"Nada," means "hope" in slavic languages and Nada was gifted her name in honor of her maternal Grandmother Hope, who she lived with during much of her childhood on the family farm in Texas.
Nada supports those seeking to live more fully by exploring death. She facilitates helping others create their legacy and how they wish to be remembered by their loved ones through various tools, including ethical wills, storytelling and memoir writing. She can assist with obituary writing and often is requested to officiate Celebrations of Life and Memorial Services.
