Gail Rubin, CT, The Doyenne of Death®, is a pioneering death educator, speaker, author, Before I Die Festival pioneer and Certified Funeral Celebrant. She works with organizations that want to connect with baby boomers concerned about end-of-life issues. She starts pre-need funeral planning conversations with humor, film clips and outside the box activities.

She is the author of the books A GOOD GOODBYE: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don't Plan to Die, KICKING THE BUCKET LIST: 100 Downsizing and Organizing Things to Do Before You Die, and HAIL AND FAREWELL: Cremation Ceremonies, Templates and Tips. She also writes The Family Plot Blog at AGoodGoodbye.com and contributes articles to funeral trade magazines.

Planning ahead helps families reduce stress at a time of grief, minimize conflict, save money and create a meaningful, memorable 'good goodbye.' Her motto is 'Talking about sex won't make you pregnant, and talking about funerals won't make you dead.'

Ms. Rubin earned the designation Certified in Thanatology: Death, Dying and Bereavement (CT) from the national Association for Death Education and Counseling®. The CT credential demonstrates her expertise and involvement in the field of death, dying and bereavement.

Albuquerque Business First named her one of their 2019 Women of Influence.
