Rebecca studied Biology at Villa Julie College and is a Mortuary Science graduate of Catonsville Community College. Serving the families of Baltimore for over 14 years, she has had the honor of helping a wide range of families with a vast array of needs. While each family and every person is unique, she has found that there is one constant. That is, those people who took time to plan in advance for this life event, found their experience to be easier for themselves and those they love. By helping the families create a prearrangement before a time of need, Rebecca helps families eliminate the worry and guesswork that comes when no plans have been made.
Rebecca is a former competitive figure athlete, equestrian and lives on a small horse farm in Forest Hill with her husband, two dogs, two horses and way too many chickens.
