SaDeia joined Hospice Halifax in September 2022. She is a proud member of the African Nova Scotian community, hailing from the North end of Halifax. SaDeia obtained both her BSW and MSW from Dalhousie University with a certificate in Interprofessional Health Education. Over the past eight years, SaDeia’s experience includes working in education and employment, outreach/community social work and post- secondary counselling. SaDeia’s interest in end-of-life care began while completing her MSW practicum in the ICU of the QEII Halifax Infirmary. SaDeia’s goal is to provide client centered, culturally responsive and inclusive grief and bereavement counselling supports, services and resources. In her spare time SaDeia loves spending time with her loved ones and being outside, especially by the ocean.
