Sara Wuillermin is a writer, editor, and podcaster based in southern New Jersey. She first became fascinated with grief rituals after observing roadside memorials along the county roads in South Jersey. Her personal journey with it began in 2005, the year her mom was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s. Since then, she’s explored the topic through writing about her own experiences and interviewing others about theirs.
After immersing herself in the world of grief work, Wuillermin has become dedicated to the cause that everyone deserves the chance to experience a good death. In 2019, she attended INELDA’s End of Life Doula training so she could learn more on how she could help facilitate this process.
She first fell in love with New Jersey in 1983, subsequently her year of entry onto this planet. While she’s still figuring out where her grief journey will take her, she’s certain that she’ll always have one final dying wish: “Bury Me in New Jersey.”
Bury Me in NJ is a one-woman operation fueled by partnerships with many talented individuals who bring my grief-y, New Jersey-loving ideas to life. It truly takes a village, and I welcome support in all capacities, whether you'd like to collaborate on a grief project, are interested in sharing your story for a podcast or post, or have the means to contribute financially to keep this ship running (Any funds raised that extend beyond what's needed for operational costs will fund future artistic partnerships).
