Liz Eddy, Co-Founder & CEO of Lantern

“I think we need to do something about death.”Liz lost her dad as a young kid, when her grandmother (dad’s mom) died in the winter of 2018, she was tasked with all of the planning that ensued. She walked into the nursing home where her grandmother lived and was confronted with two police officers, a nurse, her grandmother’s body, and a question of “what do you want to do next?” Needless to say, the experience was overwhelming, complicated, and pretty much entirely unguided.Liz started asking questions about why a better option didn’t exist and turned to Alyssa, her go-to person for cracking a difficult challenge. Together they started answering that question with “it should and we should build it.”Liz built her first company at 15 and led communications from inception for the nation's first free, 24/7 crisis support line, Crisis Text Line. She's also a board member of Experience Camps, a free summer camp for grieving kids.https://lantern.coSupport this show http://supporter.acast.com/death-by-design.
